As your plane circles an airport, it moves in a horizontal circle of radius 2300 m with a speed of 355 km/h. If the lift of the airplane's wings is perpendicular to the wings, at what angle should the plane be banked so that it doesn't tend to slip sideways(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I understand that the equation for determing the angle for banking is usually:

tan-1 ((v2)/gr)* would give me an angle...

What i do not understand about this problem is what exactly does it mean so that the plan will not turn sideways...do i need to set the above equation equal to something??
