Unformatted text preview: inating the normal force gives Figure B Now, there is acceleration in the vertical direction, so the vertical Newton’s Law equation will look different. The horizontal component has the same form. Here we know that the velocity is the same because it is given in the question. There is no reason to think that the centripetal accelerations or the normal forces in the two situations will be the same however. Eliminating the normal force gives Now divide the final equations coming from each figure. using the angles given....
