Question
1. What is the radius of a bobsled turn banked at 75.0° and taken at 30.0 m/s, assuming it is ideally banked?
2. Calculate the centripetal acceleration.
3. Does this acceleration seem large to you?

a) $24.6 \textrm{ m}$

b) $36.6 \textrm{ m/s}^2$

c) $a_c = 3.7g$. This seems reasonable as it would not cause injury.
