(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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?

2. Relevant equations

possibly F = ma = mv^{2}/ r ?

3. The attempt at a solution

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