consider the magnitude of the normal force that the pilot's seat exerts on him at the bottom of a dive. The plane is traveling at 273 m/s on a vertical circle of radius 706 m. Determine the ratio of the normal force to the magnitude of the pilot's weight. For comparison, note that black-out can occur for ratios as small as 2 if the pilot is not wearing an anti-G suit.
