1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data While at a country fair, you decide to ride the Farris Wheel. Having eaten too many candy apples and elephant ears, you find the motion somewhat unpleasant. To take your mind off your stomach, you wonder about the motion of the ride. You estimate the radius of the big wheel to be 14m, and you use your watch to find that each loop around takes 26s. a.) What is your speed? b.) What is the magnitude of your acceleration? c.) What is the ratio of your apparent weight to your true weight at the top of the ride? d.) What is the ratio of your apparent weight to your true weight at the bottom? 2. Relevant equations v = wr a = w^2r = v^2/r 3. The attempt at a solution I successfully solved part a by finding the frequency. I then plugged the frequency into w = 2(pi)radians(f). Then I used v = wr to find the velocity, which is 3.346. I then tried using both equations for acceleration, but I didn't get the right answer. I got it to be .8m/s^2.
