An airplane is flying in a horizontal circle at a
speed of 104 m/s. The 73.0 kg pilot does not
want the centripetal acceleration to exceed
6.98 times free-fall acceleration.
Find the minimum radius of the plane’s
path. The acceleration due to gravity is 9.81
m/s2.
Answer in units of m

  1. V^2/R <or= 6.98*g

    Solve for R. The pilot's mass is not needed.

    R >or= 158 m
