Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3hint: when the motor cyclist is at the top of the circumference, then the subsequent condition must hold: weight= centrifugal force \[\huge mg = m\frac{{v_{\min }^2}}{R}\] where R is the radius of the circumference, and Vmin is the requested speed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Boing!!!! That means the velocity should be 8m/s !! But the answer is 17.7 m/s ;;

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh !!!!! I get it now, I forgot to consider the fact that the speed will keep decreasing as the biker climbs the sphere. So that means he must start with a speed greater than 8 m/s from bottom. I can use equations of kinematics for that \(\sf 8^2 = u^2 2 \times 2\times g \times 2R\) !!! yaY !!
