Trig  Ferris Wheel
posted by Anthony Gonzalez on .
A ferris wheel is 250 ft in diameter and revolves every 40 second when in motion. You step up to the seat on the wheel at the bottom 2 feet about the fround so you are sitting 4 feet about the ground at start. Derive the formula for the height of your seat at time (t).
Then ask:
If i go around three times around, how long is the ride in distance traveled?
2356.194

124sinÐ/20(t10)+126 or
124cosÐ/20(t)+126
