Answer:The speed off the wheel at the top is 4.57 m/s.

Explanation:Given that,

A Ferris wheel on a California pier is 38 m high and rotates once every 26 seconds in the counterclockwise direction. 38 m will be the diameter of the wheel. The angular speed of the wheel is given by :

We need to find the speed of the wheel when you are at the very top. So,So, the speed off the wheel at the top is 4.57 m/s.
