## Homework Statement

A plane is in a dive. At the bottom of the dive is the maximum acceleration on the pilot. This part of the dive can be approximated by a circular path. If the centripetal acceleration on the pilot is 7.50 times g (=9.81 m/s2), what is the force felt by the pilot if her mass is 49.0 kg.

## Homework Equations

Is it this simple?

F=ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

F = (49kg)*(7.5*9.8m/s^2) = 3601.5N

According to the online answer checker, it's not correct. I guess I'm missing something. Any ideas?
