Force & Gravity
of Circular Motion
1200 kg car rounds a corner of radius r = 45 m. If the coefficient
of static friction between the tires and the road is , what is
the greatest speed the car can have in the corner without skidding?
figure represents a stock car of mass m = 1600 kg traveling at
a constant speed v = 20 m/s around a flat, circular track of
radius R = 190 m. For what value of between
the track and the tires of the car will the car be on the verge
of sliding off the track?
