(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A ride has a diameter of 4.8 N and makes 2 complete rotations in 5.0s.

a) Determine the speed of the rider.

b)What is the centripetal acceleration of the rider?

c) What is the coefficient of friction required to keep the rider from slipping downwards when the floor drops down?

2. Relevant equations

v= (2[tex]\pi[/tex]r)/T

Fc=MAc

coefficient of friction=F/N

3. The attempt at a solution

a) v= (2[tex]\pi[/tex]2.4)/2.5s

=6.0

b) Ac= (6s)^{2}/2.4m

=15

c) I don't get how to get this....
