A)Determine the minimum radius of the circle so that the centripetal acceleration at the lowest point does not exceed 5.5 's

B)Calculate the 68 pilot's effective weight (the force with which the seat pushes up on him) at the bottom of the circle.

C)Calculate the 68 pilot's effective weight (the force with which the seat pushes up on him) at the top of the circle (assume the same speed)

**bobpursley**, Wednesday, May 9, 2012 at 8:11pmWithout units on the numbers, it is impossible.

At the bottom of the loop, you have centripetal acceleartion and weight. Centripetal acceleartion = v^2/r

in g's, divide by 9.8m/s^2

A)Determine the minimum radius of the circle so that the centripetal acceleration at the lowest point does not exceed 5.5g's

B)Calculate the 68kg pilot's effective weight (the force with which the seat pushes up on him) at the bottom of the circle.

C)Calculate the 68kg pilot's effective weight (the force with which the seat pushes up on him) at the top of the circle (assume the same speed)

**Elena**, Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 9:52amv =1100 km/h = 305.6 m/s.

a =v^2/R => R = v^2/a = (305.6)^2/5.5•9.8 = 1732 m

R > 1732 m.

The magnitude of the effective weight = the magnitude of the normal force N

bottom: N = m•g – m•a =

= m• (g - 5.5•g) = - 4.5•m•g.

W = - N = 4.5•m•g =4.5•68•9.8 =2998.8 N.

top: N = - m•g – m•a = -m• (g+a) =

= -m• (g+5.5•g),

W = - N = 6.5•m•g =6.5•68•9.8 =4331.6 N.
