If a curve with a radius of 88m is perfectly banked for a car traveling 75km/h, what must be the coefficient of static friction for a car not skid when traveling at 95 km/h?

change velocities to m/s
Then, sketch the bank and force vectors parallel to the bank.
1) mg*sinTheta=mv^2/r * cosTheta
where v=75km/hr in m/s
solve for tan theta (sin/cos).
verify that. Now, you increase speed, same angle.
mg*sinTheta+mu*mg*cosTheta=mv^2/r * cosTheta
so find mu. How is the easy way? divid e by cos theta , you know tan theta.
v= new speed (95 in m/s), solve for mu.

Can you show me step by step with the numbers in there? I am confused..
