    I can't seem to answer these questions. For 18. I've worked out a) as 19.7ms^-2 by using a=r(omega)^2 and that 1 revolution is pi rads^-1
    I'm having trouble drawing the diagram as I'm not sure where the reaction force would go... any help?

    With 19, I get a). You get a triangle with sides 0.1 and 0.5 and so tana=5. Once again, stuck with the rest...

    For the diagram, you'll have the person's weight, friction, and a reaction force (the centripetal force). Friction and weight must balance if the cylinder is vertical, and then the reaction force can be calulated using circular motion equation.
