Math (please help!)

The largest Ferris Wheel in the world is the London Eye in England. The height (in metres) of a rider on the London Eye after t minutes can be described by the function h(t) = 67 sin[0.2094(t-30)] + 70

Using this equation i'm supposed to find the diameter, the maximum (top of the wheel), minimum and time it takes for the ferris wheel to go through the motion but I have no idea how to get any of this information using only an equation.

Can someone please help me?
