A student has a weight of 650 N. While riding on a roller-coaster this same student has an apparent weight of 1.97 x 103 N at the bottom of a loop that has a radius of 17.0 m. The speed of the roller-coaster is

I just need the forumla, doesn't even have to be manipulated.

    At the bottom of the loop, the apparent weight is
    1970 = (Weight) + (Centripetal force)
    = 650 + M*V^2/R

    M = W/g = 66.33 kg

    1320 = 66.33*V^2/17

    Solve for V. It will be in m/s
