### 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.
