Question

A pilot can withstand an acceleration of up to 9g, which is about 88 m/s2, before blacking out. What is the acceleration experienced by a pilot flying in a circle of constant radius at a constant speed of 495 m/s if the radius of the circle is 3340 m?

Answer:

Explanation:

Given that, the pilot can withstand 9g acceleration which is approximately 88m/s².

Now, the pilot is traveling in a circle of radius

r = 3340 m

And the speed is

v = 495 m/s

Then, acceleration?

The acceleration of a circular motion can be determine using centripetal acceleration

a = v² / r

a = 495² / 3340

a = 73.36 m/s².

Since the acceleration is less that the acceleration the pilot can withstand, then, I think the pilot makes the turn without blacking out and successfully
