Homework Help: PHYSICS

Posted by Matthew Goldberg on Friday, June 15, 2012 at 9:07pm.

Driving in your car with a constant speed of v = 11.7 m/s, you encounter a bump in the road that has a circular cross section, as indicated in the figure below. If the radius of curvature of the bump is r = 34.4 m, calculate the apparent weight of a 65.9 kg person in your car as you pass over the top of the bump.
I honestly don't even know where to start with this question. I am having a very hard time with apparent weight in general so please don't criticize me. Thank you for any and all help!
