In a vertical dive, a peregrine falcon can accelerate at 0.6 times the free-fall acceleration ? (that is, at 0.6? ) in reaching a speed of about 120 m/s. If a falcon pulls out of a dive into a circular arc at this speed and can sustain a radial acceleration of 0.6?, what is the radius ? of the turn?
