Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Ed on Friday, November 19, 2010 at 11:32pm.

What minimum coefficient of friction between the tires and the road will allow a 3700 kg truck to navigate an unbanked curve of radius 25 m at a speed of 45 km/h?

My answer:
Fnet=ma
Ff=m(v2)/r)
Ff=(3700)(452/25)
Ff=(3700)(2025/25)
Ff=(3700)(81)
Ff=299700

Frictional force
Ff=Fnµ
299700=(3700)(9.8)µ
299700=36260µ
µ= 8.3

Is this right? Thanks for your help.
