During their physics field trip to the amusement park, Tyler and Maria took a rider on the Whirligig. The Whirligig ride consists of long swings which spin in a circle at relatively high speeds. As part of their lab, Tyler and Maria estimate that the riders travel through a circle with a radius of $$6.5\text{ m}$$ and make one turn every 5.8 seconds. Determine the speed of the riders on the Whirligig.
