A 75 kg pilot flies in her plane in a loop and notices that at the top of the loop, where the plane is completely uspside down for an instant, she hangs freely in her seat. the airspeed indecator reads 120m/sec.
(a)what is the radius of the planes loop?

(b) What is the centripetal acceleration?

1. You have already been shown the centripetal force and acceleration formulas in your previous answers to questions posted under various names. For future assistance from me, show your work.
