You're driving your pickup truck around a curve with a radius of 22meters. A box in the back of the truck is pressed up against the wall of the truck.
-How fast must you drive so that the force of the wall on the box equals the weight of the box?

  • Physics -

    If the centripetal force on the box equals the weight,
    V^2/R = g
    V = sqrt(R*g) = 14.7 m/s
