What's the height at the bottom of the wheel? The top? How high above the ground is the center of the wheel?

How far does a passenger travel as the wheel makes one complete revolution? How much times does that take?

**Jennifer**, Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at 8:56pmThe height at the bottom of the wheel is 2 m; The height at the top is 2 + diameter = 137; The height at the center of the wheel is 2 + radius = 2 + 135/2

The circumference of the London Eye is 2*PI*r = PI*diameter = 135*PI. This is how far a passenger travels as the wheel makes one complete revolution. This takes (135*PI m)/(0.26 m/s)
