Question

A Ferris wheel has diameter of 11.52 m and makes one revolution in 13.3 seconds. A person weighing 591 N is sitting on one of the benches attached at the rim of the wheel. What is the apparent weight (that is, the normal force exerted on her by the bench) of the person as she passes through the highest point of her motion? Express your answer in N.

Answer #1

A Ferris wheel has diameter of 9.05 m and makes one revolution
in 12.4 seconds. A person weighing 588 N is sitting on one of the
benches attached at the rim of the wheel. What is the apparent
weight (that is, the normal force exerted on her by the bench) of
the person as she passes through the highest point of her motion?
Express your answer in N.

a ferris wheel has a radius of 5.0 m and makes one revolution
every 8.0s with uniform rotation. a person who normally weighs 670N
is sitting on one of the benches attached at the rim of the wheel.
what is the apparent weight of the person as she passes through the
lowest point of her motion?

The Cosmoclock 21 Ferris wheel in Yokohama City, Japan, has a
diameter of 100 m. Its name comes from its 60 arms, each of which
can function as a second hand (so that it makes one revolution
every 60.0 s).
A- Find the speed of the passengers when the Ferris wheel is
rotating at this rate.
B- A passenger weighs 897 N at the weight-guessing booth on the
ground. What is his apparent weight at the lowest point on the...

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?

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.

QUESTION 1. A ferris wheel has a radius of 12
m. The center of the ferris wheel is 14 m above the ground. When it
is rotating at full speed the ferris wheel takes 10 s to make a
full turn. We can track one seat on the ferris wheel. Letâ€™s define
t = 0 to be a time when that seat is at the top of the ferris wheel
while the ferris wheel is rotating at full speed. (a)...
