Presentation Transcript

banked corners, and gravity in space

• Centrifugal vs. Centripetal

• Centripetal - toward the center.

• Demo - float in jar - linear and centripetal accel

• Centrifugal - away from the center

• Things sliding to outside of car on corner

• (accel forward, thrown back, accel middle, thrown outside)

• Merry-go-round

• Mud off bike tire

• Sunglasses out the window and the F word.

• (Perceived force - not real)

The Force of the road - perp to surface

Points in and up

tan() = ((mv2/r)/(mg))

 = tan-1(v2/rg)

mg - to hold it up

mv2/r - to make it go around the corner

Banked Corners

TOC

The on ramp from onto I-5 from Nyberg is 40. m in radius maybe. What should be the bank angle to go 27 m/s around it?

 = tan-1(v2/rg), v = 27 m/s, r = 40. m, g = 9.8

 = 62o

W

62 degrees

One of the Terwilliger curves has a radius of 270 m. What is the bank angle for cars to go 29 m/s around it

 = tan-1(v2/rg), v = 29 m/s, r = 270. m, g = 9.8

 = 18o

W

18 degrees

The on ramp from onto I-5 from Nyberg is 40. m in radius maybe. What should be the bank angle to go 45. m/s (101 mph) around it?

What about 112. m/s (250 mph) around it?

What does the angle approach?

 = tan-1(v2/rg), v = 45 m/s or v = 112 m/s, r = 40. m, g = 9.8

 = 79o, = 88o

W

79 degrees and 88 degrees

Gravity in space maybe. What should be the bank angle to go 45. m/s (101 mph) around it?

Humans need gravity

Calculate tangential v if r - 500 m
