Got it: reasoning and solution.. the normal force exerted by the wall on each astronaut is the centripetal force needed to keep him in the circular path so, Fc=mv^2/r. rearranging and letting Fc=(1/3)mg yields r=3v^2/g= 3(29.1m/s)^2/(9.8m/s^2)=259m

I was able to solve this problem at firs, use the equation V=sqrt(R g tan theta) since you have two angles you will need to separate the equation into 2 Va= sqrt(r g tan a theta) Vb= sqrt (r g tan b theta) then solve for Vb Vb/Va= sqrt(r g tanb )/ sqrt(r g tan a theta) r and g...

I figured this out.. So basically you find the acceleration first V-Vo/t= 59.4-0/14.1 = 4.21m/s2 then, you find the apparent weight by multiplying 66.7*(9.8 + 4.21)= 934.47N
