The boat weighs 1200 N with its passengers. Suppose that the boat is moving at a constant speed of 20 m/s in a circular path with radius

𝑅 = 40 𝑚.

a. Determine the tangential component of force acting on the boat.

b. Determine the normal component of force acting on the boat.

For a.  ask yourself if the boat is accelerating in the tangential direction.

 

For b. Normal force is mass.v2/R  and here, mass.g = 1200 N, v = 20 m/s, R = 40m.
