Unformatted text preview: , and solve for . It is given that the diameter of the Ferris wheel is 15 m. Find . Substitute 7.5 m for , for , and find . Find the frequency of the wheel using the equation http://www.hwproblems.com/cgibin/book.cgi?bookid=0044&cptn=5pr15&id=489216 (1 of 2) [2/4/2008 4:13:43 PM] http://www.hwproblems.com/cgibin/book.cgi?bookid=0044&cptn=5pr15&id=489216 where is the angular velocity of the wheel. The angular velocity and the linear speed are connected by the equation . Substitute for in the equation for the angular velocity, and solve for . Substitute for and 7.5 m for . Express the frequency in revolutions per minute. Thus, the Ferris wheel would need to make so that the passengers would feel “ weightless ” at the topmost point. http://www.hwproblems.com/cgibin/book.cgi?bookid=0044&cptn=5pr15&id=489216 (2 of 2) [2/4/2008 4:13:43 PM]...
