An airplane travelling at 150 m/s due west turns around so it is going due east. Suppose that during the turn, the plane is executing cicular motion. The passengers in the plane experience a 1-g acceleration, meaning the centripetal acceleration is 9.8 m/s^2. What is the radius of the turn in meters? (don't include units in the answer).

a = v^2/r

r = v^2/g
