Question

A ferris wheel is 16 meters in diameter and makes one counterclockwise revolution every 3 minutes. Given that the riders board the Ferris wheel at ground level, how long does it take for a rider to go from ground level to a height of 12 meters?

Answer #1

we can use formula

**Calculation of A:**

diameter=16

so,

**Calculation of D:**

the riders board the Ferris wheel at ground level

so,

**Calculation of B:**

T=3

we can use formula

C=0

Assume that when the time starts, the people are just getting on,

so the Ferris wheel will be at a minimum

so, we can set up function as

now, we can set up f(t)=12

and then we can solve for t

now, we can solve for t

**.........Answer**

A Ferris wheel is 20 m in diameter and makes 1 revolution every
3 minutes. This Ferris wheel has a 3 meters boarding platform with
riders entering at the bottom. At time t = 0 Chris is at the top of
the ride, descending.
Find all the times at which Chris is 15 meters above the
ground.

A Ferris wheel is 20 meters in diameter and boarded from a
platform that is 1 meters above the ground. The six o'clock
position on the Ferris wheel is level with the loading platform.
The wheel completes 1 full revolution in 10 minutes. How many
minutes of the ride are spent higher than 16 meters above the
ground?

A Ferris wheel is 20 meters in diameter and boarded from a
platform that is 3 meters above the ground. The six o'clock
position on the Ferris wheel is level with the loading platform.
The wheel completes 1 full revolution in 10 minutes. How many
minutes of the ride are spent higher than 19 meters above the
ground? Round to the nearest hundredth of a minute.

A ferris wheel is 10 meters in diameter and boarded from a
platform that is 4 meters above the ground. The six o'clock
position on the ferris wheel is level with the loading platform.
The wheel completes 1 full revolution in 6 minutes. The function
h = f(t) gives your height in meters above the ground
t minutes after the wheel begins to turn.
What is the Amplitude? _________ meters
What is the Midline? y = _________ meters
What is...

A ferris wheel is 25 meters in diameter and boarded from a
platform that is 1 meters above the ground. The six o'clock
position on the ferris wheel is level with the loading platform.
The wheel completes 1 full revolution in 4 minutes. The function h
= f(t) gives your height in meters above the ground t minutes after
the wheel begins to turn. Write an equation for h = f(t).

A ferris wheel is 40 meters in diameter and boarded from a
platform that is 5 meters above the ground. The six o'clock
position on the ferris wheel is level with the loading platform.
The wheel completes 1 full revolution in 2 minutes. The function h
= f(t) gives your height in meters above the ground t minutes after
the wheel begins to turn. Write an equation for h = f(t)

A Ferris wheel is 40 meters in diameter and boarded from a
platform that is 4 meters above the ground. The six o'clock
position on the Ferris wheel is level with the loading platform.
The wheel completes 1 full revolution in 4 minutes. How many
minutes of the ride are spent higher than 42 meters above the
ground?
minutes

A Ferris wheel is 15 meters in diameter and boarded from a
platform that is 5 meters above the ground. The six o'clock
position on the Ferris wheel is level with the loading platform.
The wheel completes 1 full revolution in 2 minutes. How many
minutes of the ride are spent higher than 17 meters above the
ground?

A Ferris wheel is 30 meters in diameter and boarded from a
platform that is 3 meters above the ground. The six o'clock
position on the Ferris wheel is level with the loading platform.
The wheel completes 1 full revolution in 9 minutes. How much of the
ride, in minutes, is spent higher than 19 meters above the ground?
(Round your answer to two decimal places.)
I see other examples going over this but could you explain more
and neatly...

How do I solve this?
A ferris wheel is 35 meters in diameter and boarded from a
platform that is 2 meters above the ground. The six o'clock
position on the ferris wheel is level with the loading platform.
The wheel completes 1 full revolution in 4 minutes. The function h
= f(t) gives your height in meters above the ground t minutes after
the wheel begins to turn. Write an equation for h = f(t).
