I rode in a jet ski the other day and I noticed that when I accelerated too
quickly, the jet ski reared up at an angle. I was thinking that if a person
accelarated quicky enough on a jet ski, the jet ski would rear up to the point
where it would flip over backward 180 degrees and capsize. How much acceleration
be required for a jet ski to flip over backward 180 degrees?
