As a pilot comes out of a dive in a circular arc she experiences an upward acceleration of 9.0 gs (i.e. 9 x 9.8).
a) Mentions that the Pilot's mass is 60 kg, already solved this
b) If the speed of the plane is 330 km/h, what is the radius of the plane's arc?
ac = v2/r
Fnet = [tex]\Sigma[/tex]F
The Attempt at a Solution
No idea what to do because I can't figure out what is causing the centripetal acceleration.
mv2/r = - mg
I don't know the mass of the plane, and if I add another force which I assume would cause the centripetal acceleration then I have no way of calculating that either.
