Heres the problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A stunt motorcyclist rides with uniform speed on the inside rim of a vertical circular ramp of radius 8 m. How fast must the motor cyclist travel to aviod leaving the surface at the top of the loop.

the answer in the back of the book says 11m/s but I keep getting 8.9m/s. After working out the formula isn't the final formula v=sqrt{RG}?

Thanks ahead of time for the help!
