Here's the question again that I am trying to get help with because I can't figure it out and I got one answer, but I really couldn't understand it. Help please!
A ferris wheel makes one rotation in 15 minutes. Find your car's location and the angle of rotation after: 3 mins., 5 mins., 9 mins., 12 mins. The diameter of the wheel is 328 ft. and the height, with the base, is 369 ft.

  • Physics -

    You have to know where your car started...

    What do you mean location? Knowing the angle determines the location.

    angle= w*t=2PI/15min *time
