A ferris wheel is 30 meters in diameter and boarded in the six o'clock position from a platform that is 10 meters above the ground. The wheel completes one full revolution every 10 minutes. At the initial time t=0 you are in the twelve o'clock position.Find a formula, using the cosine function, for your height above ground after t minutes on the ferris wheel.
