To Find:

The rate of movement of passenger cart of the Ferris Wheel during ride.

Explanation

The radius of the circular path of the Ferris Wheels is 40 ft.

A ride consists of 12 revolutions in 3 minute.

To find the distance moved by the passenger cart, find the circumference of the circular path.

The circumference of the circular path is C=2πr.

Here, π=3.1416.

Therefore, 23.141640=251.33.

Therefore, the distance travelled by the passenger cart per revolution is 251
