Hey I am confused about how to find theta in this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A biker going 20 m/s on a frictionless, circular track of radius 12m banked at an angle of theta degrees

I started by just finding the accel... v^2/r = 400/12 = 33.333

the mass does not matter because it cancels out so.....

then I just dont know what to do

any info helps

thanks
