91. If the fictitious force you experience on a loop-the-loop isn't greater than your weight, will you fall?
Yes. If you go over a loop-the-loop too slowly, so that you don't accelerate downward quickly enough, you will leave the track and fall. That's why some roller coasters strap you in carefully before taking you upside-down slowly. Without the supports, you would fall out of the car.
