I wonder why the ferris wheel spins the same each time it moves.
2) Woah!! Motion? What causes the ferris wheel to move at an constant motion?
1) You see this is possible because of a process called Uniform Circular Motion. This describes an object's motion at a constant that is following a circular path.
3) Well, as a basic way of looking at it, the centripetal force is what causes the wheel to move in its path.
So, the centripetal force is what keeps the ferris wheel accelerating.
The Ferris Wheel doesn't necessarily have centripetal acceleration because it is traveling at a constant, however the tangential velocity is what keeps the rotation happening.
