Here's the question again that I am trying to get help with because I can't figure it out and I got one answer, but I really couldn't understand it. Help please!
A ferris wheel makes one rotation in 15 minutes. Find your car's location and the angle of rotation after: 3 mins., 5 mins., 9 mins., 12 mins. The diameter of the wheel is 328 ft. and the height, with the base, is 369 ft.
You have to know where your car started...
What do you mean location? Knowing the angle determines the location.
angle= w*t=2PI/15min *time
