The passengers in a roller coaster car feel 50% heavier than their true weight as the car goes through a dip with a 20.0 m radius of curvature.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the car's speed at the bottom of the dip?

I'm stuck on this problem. I understand that at the bottom they feel 1.5 times heavier. Other than that I really don't know.
