We saw a scene where the car does a 360 spin, but the driver (Tom Cruise) never jerked his head backwards. First, we thought that was wrong (right?). We then tried to calculate how much force (or pressure?) his head must have felt during that spin. We can estimate the drivers mass, the radius of the spin, and the time per revolution (T). So, Fc=4 x pi squared x mass x radius / T squared. My question is: Is Fc (centripetal force) the force the driver is feeling?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you
