which has a maximum height of 100 meters and a diameter of 50 meters. It takes the wheel seven minutes to make one revolution. Write the sinusoidal function, f(t), that models the height of your chair at any time, t.

Assuming the wheel goes counter-clockwise, and at t=0 min the chair is at ground, or f(0)=0.

Then at t minute, the wheel goes up 360 x t/7 degree.

So the height f(t)=50-50cos(360t/7)
