Question
7. You are working during your summer break as an amusement
CR park ride operator. The ride you are controlling consists of
a large vertical cylinder that spins about its axis fast enough
any person inside is held up against the wall when the
floor drops away (Fig. P6.7). The coefficient of static friction
between a person of mass mand the wall is u, and the radius
of the cylinder is R. You are rotating the ride with an angular
speed o suggested by your
supervisor. (a) Suppose a
very heavy person enters
the ride. Do you need to
increase the angular speed
so that this person will
that
not slide down the wall?
(b) Suppose some one enters
the ride wearing a very slip-
pery satin workout outfit
In this case, do you need to
increase the angular speed
so that this person will not
R
