What is the maximum speed with which a 1200-kg car can round a turn of radius 68 m on a flat road if the coefficient of static friction between tires and road is 0.80?
I will be happy to critique your thinking. Set centripetal force equal to fricion force.
centripetal force is a fictional force perceived by the object that is accelerating in a circle (turning). The real force (the normal force) is inwards towards the center of the circle.
