During a high-speed chase, a 2400-lb sports car traveling
at a speed of 100 mi/h just loses contact with the road as it
reaches the crest A of a hill. a) Determine the radius of
curvature r of the vertical profile of the road at A. b)
Using the value of r found in a part a), determine the
force exerted on a 160-lb driver by the seat of his 3100-lb
car as the car, traveling at a constant speed of 50 mi/h,
passes through A.
