During an Olympic bobsled run, the Jamaican team makes a turn of radius 7.6 m at a speed of 96.6 km/h. What is their acceleration in terms of g?

Compare V^2/R (their acceleration) to g.
Before using the formula, convert the 96.6 km/h speed to m/s by multiplying by the appropriate factors, 1000 m/km and 1/3600 h/s.
