    (2210 rev/min)(1 min/60 s)(2pi rad/rev)(2.80 ft/rad)

    = (2210*2pi*2.80 / 60) ft/s

    = about 6000 ft/s but use a calculator.

    Hint: What is the circumference of the path of the tip of the propeller?

    It does this 2210 times in 60 seconds.

    Conclusion?

    Done! 

    Hopefully no one will spoil you the answer. That would be very irresponsible of them.
