question about trig function
I am looking for a solution for this:
A Ferris wheel has a radius of 36.6 feet. The bottom of the Ferris wheel sits 0.6 feet above the ground. You board the Ferris wheel at the 6 o'clock position and rotate counter-clockwise.
a. Define a function,
f that gives your height above the ground (in feet) in terms of the angle of rotation (measured in radians) you have swept out from the 6 o'clock position,
b. Define a function,
g, that gives your height above the ground (in feet) in terms of the number of feet you have rotated counter-clockwise from the 6 o'clock position,

There is no need to duplicate your posts in multiple forums.
Also, have you made an attempt of the problem? Drawing a simple diagram may help you understand this one a bit better.
