Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Bob on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 at 11:59am.

In a popular amusement-park ride, a cylinder of radius 3.00 m is set in rotation at an angular speed of 5.00 rad/s (counter-clockwise). The floor then drops away, leaving the riders suspended against the wall in a vertical position. What minimum coefficient of friction between a rider's clothing and the wall of the cylinder is needed to keep the rider from slipping? (Hint: Recall that Fs = [Mu symbol]s*Fn. where the normal force is the force that maintains circular motion.)
