You are in a car of a ferris wheel. The wheel has a radius of 8m and turns counterclockwise. Let the orgin be at the center of the wheel. Begin each sketch in parts a) and b) when the radius from the centre of the wheel to your car is along the positive x-axis.

a) Sketch the graph of your horizontal displacement versus the angle through which you turn for one rotation of the wheel. Which function models the horizontal displacement? Justify your choice.

b) Sketch the graph of your vertical displacement versus the angle through which you turn for one rotation of th wheel. Which function models the vertical displacement?Justify your answer.
