A girl tries a spinning teacup ride, beloved at amusement parks across the world.
There are four saucers on the ride's base and four cups on each saucer. The base, saucers, and cups each take 20 seconds to make one complete clockwise rotation.
If the girl in the picture is facing east now, which way will she be facing after the cup has spun for 15 seconds?
Are you thinking too hard about this?
She'd be facing south. You can work this out by calculating the total rotation of the base, saucer, and cup:
270 degrees times 3 equals 810 degrees, which makes two full rotations with an added 90 degrees.
