the condition of apparent weightlessness for the passengers can be created for a brief instant when a plane flies over the top of a vertical circle. at a speed of 215 meters per second, what is the radius of the vertical circle that the pilot must use?

  • physics -

    Solve for r in mv²/r = mg

  • physics -

    but what is m?

  • physics -

    you wont need m, the m, in both sides of the equation cancel each other
