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 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, a b. Define a function, g 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, s Last edited by skipjack; December 6th, 2016 at 04:48 AM.
