### What was the diameter of the first Ferris wheel?

250 feet
The original Ferris Wheel was supported by two 140 foot steel towers and a 45 foot axle (27). The wheel had a diameter of 250 feet, was 264 feet tall, and had 36 wooden carts (28).

How do you find revolutions with diameter?

Secondly, multiply the diameter by pi, which is approximately 3.1416, to find the tire circumference. For example, if the tire has a 20 inch diameter, multiply 20 by 3.1416 to get 62.83 inches. Finally, divide 63,360 inches per mile by the tire circumference to find the revolutions per mile.
