A car of mass 1979 kg drives over a semicircular hilltop of radius 12.6 m and through a semicircular valley of radius 17.2 m with a constant velocity of 7.28 m/s.

What is the normal force on the car at the bottom of the valley?

would i use the equation mv^2/r +mg ?

• physics -

at the bottom? Force= mg+mv^2/r

yes, use that equation
