A motorcycle has a constant speed of 30.0 m/s as it passes over the top of a hill whose radius of curvature is 134 m. The mass of the motorcycle and driver is 333 kg.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a)Find the magnitude of the centripetal force that acts on the cycle.

(I found the Centripetal force by Fc=mv^2/r which is 2236.6N)

b)Find the magnitude of the normal force that acts on the cycle.

( I thought they are asking for F=ma for this which is wrong..... any help?,)
