1.A woman rides a carnival Ferris wheel at radius 15 m, completing five turns about its horizontal axis every minute. What are (a) the period of the motion, the (b) magnitude and (c) direction of her centripetal acceleration at the highest point, and the (d) magnitude and (e) direction of her centripetal acceleration at the lowest point?
2.The pilot of an aircraft flies due east relative to the ground in a wind blowing 20 km/h toward the south. If the speed of the aircraft in the absence of wind is 70km/h, what is the speed of the aircraft relative to the ground?
What is confusing?
I have the formula's to solving these two, but some information is missing...
