a)Find the equation of the graph

b)predict how the graph and the equation will change if the Ferris wheel turns more slowly

c) test your predictions from part b by drawing a graph for three revolutions and finding a equation if the wheel completes one revolution every 20 s.

y = 7sin(pi/8 t) + 8.5

with appropriate shift depending on where the wheel is at time 0.

slower turning means longer period, so the coefficient of t will decrease.

**Steve**, Sunday, July 21, 2013 at 4:57amset 2pi/k = 16 and solve for k.

Because the period is 16. Normally, sin(x) has period 2pi. Review your text and reread my first line.
