## Homework Statement

An airplane flies at speed v in a horizontal circle of radius R. At what angle should the plane be banked so that you don't feel like you are getting flung to the side in your seat?

## Homework Equations

Newton's equations, a(c) = v^2 / R

## The Attempt at a Solution

N

_{x}= mg cos (theta) sin (theta) = m v

^{2}/ R

and solve for the angle (correct?)

(this maybe a introductory physics problem, i don't care if it's moved)
