A Ferris wheel of radius 100 feet is rotating at a constant angular speed ωrad/sec counterclockwise. Using a stopwatch, therider finds it takes 6 seconds to go from the lowest point on the ride to a point Q, which is level with the top of a 44 ft pole.Assume the lowest point of the ride is 3 feet above ground level.Let Q(t)=(x(t),y(t))be the coordinates of the rider at time tseconds; i.e., the parametric equations. Assuming the riderbegins at the lowest point on the wheel, then the parametric equations will have the form: x(t)=rcos(ωt-π/2) andy(t)=rsin(ωt -π/2), where r,ωcan be determined from the information given. Provide answers below accurate to 3 decimalplaces. (Note: We have imposed a coordinate system so that the center of the ferris wheel is the origin. There are other ways
