Homework Help: Maths

Posted by Melody on Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 8:02am.

I have a trig question regarding a ferris wheel, radius 35m, axles 37m, clockwise direction, rotates twice every 10 mins. I have calculated the following function:
h = -35cos(2pi*X/5)+37
I have calculated at what height I would be after 3 minutes by substituting X=3 in the above equation. However, I need to calculate at what times I would be 30m off the ground. Can you please tell me if I am on the right track and how to calculate the time?
Many thanks
