Question

A stunt plane is in a movie and needs to do a loop-the-loop in
air. If the radius of the loop is 10 m what is the minimum speed a
pilot needs to take so that they don’t fall out of the plane?

Answer #1

Gravitational acceleration = g = 9.81 m/s2

Mass of the pilot = m

Weight of the pilot = W

Radius of the loop = R = 10 m

Minimum speed of the pilot = V

For minimum speed at the top of the loop the normal force on the pilot from the seat is zero, which means the required centripetal force for the circular motion of the pilot is provided by the pilot's weight.

Centripetal force required = F

V = 9.9 m/s

**Minimum speed a pilot needs so that they don't fall out
of the plane = 9.9 m/s**

A stunt pilot in an air show performs a loop-the-loop in a
vertical circle of radius 3.08 x 103 m. During this
performance the pilot whose weight is 614 N, maintains a constant
speed of 2.20 x 102 m/s. When the pilot is at the
highest point of the loop determine his apparent weight in N.

In an adventure movie, a 68 kg stunt woman slips off a ledge,
falls 7.5 m and lands in a huge air bag. Her vertical speed when
initially leaving the ledge was zero. Her speed just before she hit
the air bag was 10 m/s.
a) What is the woman’s change in kinetic energy after she comes
into contact with the bag? (3400 J or -3400 J)
b) What is the total work done on the stunt woman while she...

A movie stunt performer is filming a scene where he swings
across a river on a vine. The safety crew must use a vine with
enough strength so that it doesn't break while swinging. The stunt
performer's mass is 80.0 kg, the vine is 12.0 m long, and the speed
of the stunt performer at the bottom of the swing has been
determined to be 8.60 m/s. What is the minimum tension force (in N)
the vine must be able...

A new roller coaster contains a loop-the-loop in which the car
and rider are completely upside down. If the radius of the loop is
17.6 m, with what minimum speed must the car traverse the loop so
that the rider does not fall out while upside down at the top?
Assume the rider is not strapped to the car. (Give answer to the
nearest 0.1 m/s)

A stunt rider is traveling clockwise around the inside of a
vertical, circular loop of track, riding a motorbike at a constant
speed of 16.1m/s.
a) Draw a FBD of the bike when its at the very top of the
circular track and moving to the right. Neglect air resistance and
friction
b) Although the bike's speed is constant, its acceleration isn't
zero. Explain why, in 1~2 sentences without equations or
calculations, starting with a brief definition of acceleration.
c)...

The drawing shows a version of the loop-the-loop trick for a
small car. The radius of the loop = 0.48 m. What is minimum initial
speed () that the car needs to have in order to remain in contact
with the circular track at all times?

David’s son Harley wants to do a loop-the-loop on his new
motorcycle. If he weighs 800 N, and his cycle weighs 2500 N, what
minimum speed will he need so as not to fall on his head?

The University Skydiving Club has asked you to plan a stunt for
an air show. In this stunt, two skydivers will step out of opposite
sides of a stationary hot air balloon 1500 meters above the ground.
The second skydiver will leave the balloon 20 seconds after the
first skydiver but you want them both to land on the ground at the
same time. The show is planned for a day with no wind so assume
that all motion is...

The pilot of a small plane maintains an air speed of 66 knots
(or nautical miles per hour) and wants to fly due North (0?) with
respect to the Earth.
If a wind of 31 knots is blowing from the east (90?), calculate
the heading (azimuth) the pilot must take.
Answer in units of ?.
