PHYSICS

Design a carnival ride on which standing passengers are pressed against the inside curved wall of a rotating vertical cylinder. It is to turn at most at 1/2 revolution per second. Assuming a minimum coefficient of friction of 0.20 between clothing and wall, what diameter should the ride have if we can safely make the floor drop away when it reaches running speed?
