Calculate how many g's (gravity accelerations) feel glider pilot when turning the horizontal circles of radius 148 m flying at 95 km/h. Centripetal acceleration is proportional to the square of the speed and inversely proportional to the radius of rotation.

Consider a vertically acting gravity acceleration g=9.81 ms-1.

Result

x =  1.11 g
