Homework Statement


If a plane is flying level at 950 km/h and the banking angle is not to exceed 40 degrees what is the minimum curvature radius for the turn?


Homework Equations



possibly F = ma = mv2 / r ?

The Attempt at a Solution


no idea where to start on this one, not sure where the angle factors into everything

Assume that the force of the air on the plane in the direction perpendicular to the wings does not change when the airplane banks.
