Determine the height of a capsule/pod above the ground after 25 mins.

The diameter of the "Eye" is 135 meters and each rotation takes 30 mins. By first developing a suitable model to represent the rotation of the "Eye", determine the height of a capsule/pod above the ground after 25 minutes.
The London Eye is a major tourist attraction in London, England. During a ride on the "Eye", the rotation can be modeled using a periodic function.
State any assumptions made in determining your results.

You probably should state that the London Eye is a giant ferris wheel>

Sorry, this was just a question I got on my test, and not sure how to do. Phrased it word for word on the sheet. Thanks for your answer!

No sorry necessary. although I am sorry I could not explain it better without using a drawing, plus I had a problem explaining the initial angle, theta (sub 0) at t = 0.
