Normal force in circular motion

  1. Dec 1, 2012 #1

    Suppose we have a fellow on a ferris wheel. Would the normal force be greater on the top or at the bottom of the ferris wheel? I'm thinking that it would be greater at the top, or am I wrong?

    What's your reasoning? What forces act on the person?
