John has been hired to design an exciting carnival ride. Tiff, the carnival owner, has decided to create the world's greatest ferris wheel. Tiff isn't into math; she simply has a vision and has told John these constraints on her dream: (i) the wheel should rotate counterclockwise with an angular speed of a = 15 RPM; (ii) the linear speed of a rider should be 250 mph; (iii) the lowest point on the ride should be c = 4 feet above the level ground.
(b)Once the wheel is built, John suggests that Tiff should take the first ride. The wheel starts turning when Tiff is at the location P, which makes an angle θ with the horizontal, as pictured. It takes her 1.4 seconds to reach the top of the ride. Find the angle θ (radians).
So for this part I tool 1.4/(60/15) and got 0.35 of a revolutions. Then I have no idea where to go from here.
(c) Poor engineering causes Tiff's seat to fly off in 6 seconds. Describe where Tiff is located (an angle description) the instant she becomes a human missile.
I would assume for this one it would be just like b but using 6 sec. Again I just dont know what direction to go.
