Assuming the wheel moves at the same speed as the water (ie: neglecting and 'slip' of the wheel past the water), angular velocity is given by: $$\omega = v / r$$ where $r$ is the 'radial' distance from the centre of the wheel to the top of the water. In practice, there will be some water sliding past the wheel, depending upon the hydrodynamics of the ...
