- What must the curve's angle be for a roller coaster car to
travel around a curve of radius 30 m at 20
^{m}/s? - How many g's are felt by a rider as he travels around the banked curve in the previous problem?
- A car is to make it around a banked curve. The radius is 15.35
m and the car will travel at 30
^{m}/s. What is the optimum banking angle of the curve? - A car is to make it around a banked curve. The radius is 15.35
m and the car will travel at 30 m/s. This roller coaster is on the moon where the
acceleration due to gravity is 1.67
^{m}/s2. What is the optimum banking angle of the curve? - A rider is to make it around a curve of radius of 24.28 m so
that the rider will feel 2.50 g's. What is the angle of the banked
curve?
- A rider is to make it around a curve of radius of 31.15 m so
that the rider will feel 1.64 g's. How fast must the rider be
traveling?
- A rider is to make it around a curve of radius of 51.15 m so
that the rider will feel 4.52 g's. How fast must the rider be
traveling?
8 What is the banked angle of the bottom curve? If you use or find this page useful or have any comments, please contact the author so maybe he'll do more.
