Homework Help: homework physics 3

Posted by Nerdy Nancy on Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 10:11pm.

Air rushing over the wings of high-performance race cars generates unwanted horizontal air resistance but also causes a vertical downforce, which helps cars hug the track more securely. The coefficient of static friction between the track and the tires of a 552-kg car is 0.967. What is the magnitude of the maximum acceleration at which the car can speed up without its tires slipping when a 3150-N downforce and an 1300-N horizontal air resistance force act on it?
