period = ____ minutes amplitude = ____ meters midline h = _____?
A Ferris wheel is 50 meters in diameter and boarded from a platform that is 5 meters above the ground. The six o'clock position on the Ferris wheel is level with the loading platform. The wheel completes one full revolution every 8 minutes. You make two complete revolutions on the wheel, starting at t = 0
Consider the function h = f(t) the height above the ground (in meters) at time t, in minutes. Determine the period, amplitude, and midline of the function h = f(t)
period = 8 minutes, how about the rest?

I think the period might be 8 minutes.
