Billy is riding on a 20 meter diameter Ferris wheel that is making 3 revolutions per minute. What are your linear velocity and your angular velocity? If there are 8 equally spaced seats on the ferris wheel then what is the length of the arc between two adjacent seats?

  1. the circumference is 20pi meters. So, the linear velocity is 60pi m/min.

    angular velocity is 2pi radians per revolution, so 6pi radians/min

    you know the circumference. Divide that by 8 to get the distance between seats.
