#### Solution

Let the radius of the wheel be r cm.

Distance covered by the wheel in one revolution

=

= \frac { 11 }{ 5000 } × 1000 × 100 cm = 220 cm

∴ Circumference of the wheel = 220 cm

⇒ 2πr = 220 cm ⇒ 2 × \frac { 22 }{ 7 } × r = 220

⇒ r = 35 cm

∴ Diameter = 2r cm = (2× 35) cm = 70 cm

Hence, the diameter of the wheel is 70 cm.
