A bike has wheels with diameter 0.6m. The bike moves along the road at 6m/s. Determine an equation for the height of the the speck on the tire above the road as a function of time in t seconds.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I think that the amplitude is 0.3 and my period is 0.6pi (circumference). Would there be any phase shifts left or right, up or down. How would the period be written in the function?

y=0.3sin10pi/3
