49. (a) At the top (the highest point in the circular motion) the seat pushes up on the student with a force of magnitude F N = 556 N. Earth pulls down with a force of magnitude W = 667 N. The seat is pushing up with a force that is smaller than the student’s weight, and we say the student experiences a decrease in his “apparent weight” at the highest point. Thus, he feels “light.” (b) Now F N is the magnitude of the upward force exerted by the seat when the student is at the lowest point. The net force toward the center of the circle is
