7-159.

A Ferris wheel,

Sketch a diagram. Assume the wheel is rotating counterclockwise and let the passenger be at acute angle and height

*above a horizontal radius. Do you see the right triangle? Write a geometric equation relating*

Determine the value of ft.

Once you compute this value, use the differential equation to solve the problem.
