• When there’s acceleration the line of gravity tilts in the direction of acceleration.
• In a turn, centripetal acceleration tilts the line of gravity toward the inside of the turn as the centrifugal force pulls outward.
• For a given speed, the tighter the turn the greater the centrifugal force.
• For a given rotation rate (rpms) the centrifugal force is greater on the outer rim.
