Homework Statement


A woman flying an airplane executes a loop in the air. Determine the value of the centripetal force acting on the woman flying the airplane when at the top of the loop?

R = 380m
V = 65 m/s
M = 55kg


Homework Equations


Fc = mv^2/r


The Attempt at a Solution


I know what to put it on the right side, but I understand that Fc (Centripetal Force), is a net force. Would it be Fn - Fg, or Fg - Fn (Fg = gravity, Fn = Normal Force)

Doesn't the problem ask for just the centripetal force?
