2. You are on the London Eye observational wheel, which is 135 m tall and rotates once every half-hour. What is your velocity (speed and direction)?

• science -

The direction depends upon where you are on the wheel; it will be tangent to the wheel. The speed is the circumference (pi*D) divided by 1800 seconds. I am assuming this is some kind of Ferris Wheel.
