Jack decides to ride the ferris wheel. He board at 1m and is the last person on the ride. The diameter of the wheel is 16m and it takes 8sec for one complete revolution. Find the equation that represents Jack's height in relation to time. Then use the equation to detiremine Jack's height after 35sec.

angle in radians
r = 8
T = 8
h = 1 at bottom so center at 9
h = 9 + R sin(2 pi t/T)
h = 9 + 9 sin (2 pi t/8)
