At an amusement park there is a ride in which cylindrically shaped chambers spin around a central axis. People sit in seats facing the axis, their backs against the outer wall. At one instant the outer wall moves at a speed of 3.04 m/s, and an 65.2-kg person feels a 290-N force pressing against his back. What is the radius of a chamber?
