Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points In a popular amusementpark ride, a cylin der of radius 3.90 m is set in rotation at an angular speed of 4.46 rad/s, as shown in the figure. The floor then drops away, leaving the riders suspended against the wall in a vertical position. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 81 m / s 2 . 3 . 9 m What minimum coefficient of friction be tween a riders clothing and the wall of the cylinder is needed to keep the rider from slip ping? Correct answer: 0 . 126455. Explanation: Basic Concepts: F n = F c = m r 2 F s = s F n = s m r 2 F g = m g Given: r = 3 . 90 m = 4 . 46 rad / s g = 9 . 81 m / s 2 Solution: F s = F g s m r 2 = m g s = g r 2 = 9 . 81 m / s 2 (3 . 9 m) (4 . 46 rad / s) 2 = 0 . 126455 002 10.0 points A curve of radius 50 . 5 m is banked so that...
