    Question: how would i find the coefficient of static friction that would keep people from falling out of a spinning amusement park ride when the bottom dropped out if all i knew was the radius and the amount of revolutions per second...???

    That very same problem was solved here a couple days ago - spend a few minutes to look it up!
