Suppose the vertical loop has a radius of 8.92 m. What is the apparent weight (Wap) of a rider on the roller coaster at the bottom of the loop? (Assume that friction between roller coaster and rails can be neglected. Give your answer in terms of m and g.)

wouldn't it depend on the velocity of the rider?
