Question

A bird while flying takes a left turn, where does it get the centripetal force from ?

Solution

The bird tilts its body and tail in such a way that the air around offers a dragging force in left direction, perpendicular to its initial direction of motion. This dragging force provides the necessary centripetal force to take the left turn.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
