An Ferris Wheel has a radius of 16m and rotates once every 20 seconds.
a) Find Centripedal acceleration.
b) Whats the effektive wheight of a 45 kg person at highest point?
c) Lowest point?
a) I tried using the a=ω2*r in a) but not sure if its right
c) We = mg - ma
Is this the correct equation for a and b?
The Attempt at a Solution
I got out 1,578m*s-2 in a) but not sure if thats correct really.
and also strugling with b) and c)
But heres c) atleast trying using that equation:
45kg*9,82m*s-2 - 45kg*1,578m*s-2= 370,89N Is that right?
and b) do i use same equation for upward motion?
