## Homework Statement

A 60 kg person rides in a 20 kg cart

moving at 13 m/s at the bottom of a valley that is in the shape of an arc of a circle

with a radius of 36 m. What is the apparent weight of the person as the cart passes

the bottom of the valley?

## Homework Equations

F=ma

F=(V^2/r) * (m1 + m2)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Fnet = Fn - Fg

m(V^2/r) - mg

80(169/36) - 80(9.8)

= -408.44

...im stuck. I don't feel like this is right and I don't know where I really went wrong
