I have a trig question regarding a ferris wheel, radius 35m, axles 37m, clockwise direction, rotates twice every 10 mins. I have calculated the following function: h = -35cos(2pi*X/5)+37 I have calculated at what height I would be after 3 minutes by substituting X=3 in the ...

A 10.4-g CD with a radius of 5.85 cm rotates with an angular speed of 33.8 rad/s. What is its kinetic energy? (in J) I need help with this question. I thought you would just use K=1/2mv^2 but when I use m=0.0104kg and v=33.8 I get 5.94 which isn't the correct answer....
