A fighter pilot dives his plane toward the ground at 230 m/s. He pulls out of the dive on a vertical circle. What is the minimum radius of the circle, so that the normal force exerted on the pilot by his seat never exceeds three times his weight?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com May 24, 2023, 12:53 pm ad1c9bdddf
The greatest normal force on the pilot occurs at the lowest point on the circular path. At this point, the speed v = 230 m/sec is ...
The greatest normal force on the pilot is discovered.
