Fairgoers ride a Ferris wheel with a radius of 5.00 . The wheel completes one revolution every 33.0 .
If a rider accidentally drops a stuffed animal at the top of the wheel, where does it land relative to the base of the ride? (Note: The bottom of the wheel is 1.75 above the ground.)??

Please provide the units of your physical quantities. Is the radius in meters or feet? Is the revolution time in seconds or minutes?
Use the radius and rotation rate to get the horizontal velocity at the top of the rotation. Use the radius and height of the wheel to get time it takes the stuffed animal to fall.
