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



Nx = mg cos (theta) sin (theta) = m v2 / R

and solve for the angle (correct?)

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