    Thanks so much for creating all these articles!!
    They were extremely helpful for a physics project, especially the article on banking turns and calculating the ideal banked turn!!!
    Keep the great work coming!

    Thanks so much,

    This site is really helpful!
    I am working on a project for my school, but I have a question:
    about the radius of the drop, what do you mean by G’s=Acentripetal/9.8?
    What exactly is Acentripetal?
