Fictituous forces and apparent weight

    The passengers in a roller coaster car feel 50% heavier than their true weight as the car goes through a dip with a 30.0 radius of curvature.

    Nobody's going to do your homework for you, but a diagram with some marked forces is usually a good place to start.
