An airplane is flying in a horizontal circle at a speed of 514.8 km/h. The plane is banked for this turn, its wings tilted at an angle of 41.6° from the horizontal. Assume that a lift force acting perpendicular to the wings acts on the aircraft as it moves through the air. What is the radius of the circle in which the plane is flying?
km
