**What is the RATE of Rotation! help!**

An automatic tumble dryer has a 0.65m diamter basket that rotates about a horizontal axis. As the basket turns, the clothes fall away from the basket's edge and tubmle over. IF the colthes fall away from the basket at a point 60 degrees from the vertical, what is the rate of rotation in units of revolutions per minute.

i thought this problem would be extremely simple.

I was wrong :)

First i get

V^2 / rg = tan theta

so i get

Vc^2 = rg tan theta

soif ifind Vc i get 1.785

Now this wouldn't make snese...

does someone else have a different Apporpach
