at the point S=(9,0) on the x-axis. The spider plans to move along the tangential line pictured at a constant rate. Assume the spider startsmoving at the same time as the ant. Finally, assume that the spider catches the ant at the tangency point P the second time the ant reachesP. (a) The coordinates of the tangency point P=(\$\$19,\$\$459). (b) The FIRST time the ant reaches Pis\$\$0.465seconds. (c) The SECOND time the ant reaches Pis\$\$2.465seconds. (d) The parametric equations for the motion of the spider are: x(t)=\$\$3.6063t +\$\$9;y(t)=
4.4/4 points | Previous AnswersA Ferris wheel of radius 100 feet is rotating at a constant angular speed ωrad/sec counterclockwise. Using a stopwatch, the rider finds it takes6 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 rideis 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 rider begins at the lowestpoint on the wheel, then the parametric equations will have the form: x(t)=rcos(ωt-π/2) and y(t)=rsin(ωt -π/2), where r,ωcan be determined
