Problem 15CQ

Problem 15CQ

In one amusement park ride, riders enter a large vertical barrel and stand against the wall on its horizontal floor. The barrel is spun up and the floor drops away. Riders feel as if they are pinned to the wall by a force something like the gravitational force. This is a fictitious force sensed and used by the riders to explain events in the rotating frame of reference of the barrel. Explain in an inertial frame of reference (Earth is nearly one) what pins the riders to the wall, and identify all of the real forces acting on them.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 2

We have to identify all the real forces that holds a man on the wall of the spinning vertical barrel in amusement park observed from the inertial frame of reference like earth.

Step 2 of 2
