Please i need help on this tough physics problem..
An amusement park ride consists of a rotating vertical cylinder with rough canvas walls. The floor is initially about halfway up the cylinder. after the rider has entered and the cylinder is rotating sufficiently fast, the floor is dropped down, yet the rider doesnt drop down. The rider has mass of 50kg, radius of the cylinder is 5m, angular velocity of the cylinder is 2 radians per second and the coefficient of static friction between the rider and the wall is 0.6.
Calculate the centriputal force, upward force that prevents the rider from falling
