Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Mark Main on Sunday, July 31, 2011 at 10:15pm.

Pretend our future colonists build a large round 2km diameter train track on the great plains of Mars that is sloped (angled) inward to artificially increase the gravity felt by the occupants living onboard the house sized train cars speeding along at the rails a constant velocity.

Q: Using 3.8m/s^2 for Martian gravity what is the train car speed and track angle required to simulate Earth’s 9.81m/s^2 gravity? And what are the formulas to derive this answer?

This is not a homework assignment, I'm just doing it for fun in writing a sci-fi screenplay
