If a spinning drum ride cannot exceed a 10 m radius, and the riders are not to

experience an acceleration greater than 2g, what is the maximum speed at

which the drum can spin?

2. Relevant equations

No Idea

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried using (theta) = tan^{-1}of (rg/v^{2})

v^{2}= (tan(theta))/(rg)

v = (root) of (tan(theta))/(rg)
