Example 2: A pilot of mass m in a jet aircraft moves in vertical circle of radius 2.7 km at a constant speed of 225 m/s. Determine the force exerted by the seat on the pilot a) at the bottom of the loop and b) at the top of the loop. Concept: we have constant centripetal force in A and B But components of this force are different in A and B Categor.:
