Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The period of a ball in circular motion is 1/Frequency so 1/7.9=.1266 seconds.

The speed is distance over time and the distance traveled in 1 second is:
  7.9revolutions times the circumference (pi*d)= 7.9*pi*1.4m= 34.73 m/s


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
