Pilots of high-performance fighter planes can be subjected to large centripetal accelerations during high-speed turns. Because of these accelerations, the pilots are subjected to forces that can be much greater than their body weight, leading to an accumulation of blood in the abdomen and legs. As a result, the brain becomes starved for blood, and the pilot can lose consciousness (“black out”). The pilots wear “anti-G suits” to help keep the blood from draining out of the brain. To appreciate the forces that a fighter pilot must endure, consider the magnitude $F_{N}$ of the normal force that the pilot's seat exerts on him at the bottom of a dive. The magnitude of the pilot's weight is $W .$ The plane is traveling at 230 $\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s}$ on a vertical circle of radius 690 $\mathrm{m}$ . Determine the ratio $F_{N} / W$ . For comparison, note that blackout can occur for values of $F_{\mathrm{N}} / W$ as small as 2 if the pilot is not wearing an anti-G suit.

Newton's Laws of Motion are three physical laws that, laid the foundation for classical mechanics. They describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it, and its motion in response to those forces. These three laws have been expressed in several ways, over nearly three centuries, and can be summarised as follows: In his 1687 "Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica" ("Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy"), Isaac Newton set out three laws of motion. The first law defines the force F, the second law defines the mass m, and the third law defines the acceleration a. The first law states that if the net force acting upon a body is zero, its velocity will not change; the second law states that the acceleration of a body is proportional to the net force acting upon it, and the third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In physics, dynamics is the branch of physics concerned with the study of forces and their effect on matter, commonly in the context of motion. In everyday usage, "dynamics" usually refers to a set of laws that describe the motion of bodies under the action of a system of forces. The motion of a body is described by its position and its velocity as the time value varies. The science of dynamics can be subdivided into, Dynamics of a rigid body, which deals with the motion of a rigid body in the frame of reference where it is considered to be a rigid body. Dynamics of a continuum, which deals with the motion of a continuous system, in the frame of reference where the system is considered to be a continuum.

here we have defined the ratio of the normal force to the total weight of a pilot in a fighter jet for a given radius and velocity. Now it seem weird to little plane. I think about normal fours, but we're looking at the normal force between the pilot and the chair. I mean, and we know that when the plane is going in a circular motion, it's are the floor of the plane. Could be a prude can be approximated by I kind of think curve shape. If we imagine this adopt as chair with pilot in it, we know that the force of gravity must be pointing straight down with a normal forest perpendicular to the surface. Now we can break this normal forced up into components like we usually do for this kind of problem. If you've seen these before, we have a critical component, as well as a, um, horizontal component and X. Now the vertical component, which we concede must be balancing out The gravitational force, says they're pointing in opposite directions, so f y equals mg, the horizontal component. That axe is pointing directly toward the center of our circle in motion. So therefore it must be responsible for the centripetal force and B squared over R. Now, since every fourth is just the addition of its components, we know that f n must be equal to these two forces. Added together X plus f y or MG plus M V squared over on now. In this problem, we want to find the ratio between normal force and the total weight of the pilot. So let's divide both sides by weight. Now, wait is ableto mg. So that means that the first term of our addition just ends up being one on the second term ends up being these squared over gr as our EMS cancel and we have to divide by G. So now we can plug in. You move this over here that sign over omega is equal to one plus our velocity, which is six are 230 meters per second squared, divided by 9.8 meters per second squared multiplied by our, which is 690 meters. That would be equal to one plus 7.82 which we can round to say the FN over Amanda is equal to 8.8. And considering that the problem tells us that a ratio of two is enough to make a human being black out. That is a pretty high rate.
