1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data cylindrical space station - large diameter, thin walled - radius r, mass M rotating in deep space, no gravity 1)radial spokes of negligible mass connect the cylinder ti the centre of motion. Astronaut mass m climbs a spoke to the centre. What is the fractional change in apparent gravity on the surface of the cylinder? 2)if the astronaut climbs halfway up a spoke and lets go, how far form the base of the spoke will he hit the cylinder? Assume the astronaut is point like.. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution 1) Got the answer to be 1+m/M for ratio after/before.. is this right? I applied conservation of energy rather than angular momentum...why is angular momentum not conserved? 2) How do i do this one? Consv of energy again?
