Physics

For a scene in a movie, a stunt driver drives a 1.50×103kg SUV with a length of 4.30m around a circular curve with a radius of curvature of 0.333 km (Figure 1) . The vehicle is to be driven off the edge of a gully 10.0 m wide, and land on the other side 2.96 m below the initial side.

Part A
What is the minimum centripetal acceleration the SUV must have in going around the circular curve to clear the gully and land on the other side?
