Question

A Cyclist Turns Around A Curve At 15Km/hr If He Turns At Double The Speed The Tendency To Overturn Is :


Open in App
Solution

Formula :

We know centrifugal force , F=mv2r

where

v=velocity of the object

m= mass of the object

r=turning radius

As the mass and turning radius does not change in this case, we consider them as constant.

Thus we can say that

Centrifugal force, F=αv2(wherea=mr=constant)

Now, as per the question, if the velocity of the cyclist is doubled, then its tendency to overturn will be increased by four times.

Hence, If a cyclist turns around a curve at 15Km/hr and if he turns at double the speed , the tendency to overturn will be increased by four times.
