A student of weight 648 N rides a steadily rotating Ferris wheel (the student sits upright). At the highest point, the magnitude of the normal force F→N on the student from the seat is 592 N. (a) What is the magnitude of F→N at the lowest point? If the wheel's speed is doubled, what is the magnitude FN at the (b) highest and (c)lowest point?
