Ahang glider and its pilot have a total mass equal to 128 kg. While executing a 360° tum, the glider moves
in a circle with a 9 m radius. The glider’s speed is 14 m/s. (Assume the glider tums along the horizontal
plane.) (@) What is the net force on the hang glider? (b) What is the acceleration?

the net force on the hang glider is centripetal force.
the net force on the hang glider = F = mv‘2/r
F = 128*(14)’2/9 = 2787.55 N
acceleration = F/m = 21.78 m/s*2
