When you take your 1300-kg car out for a spin, you go around a corner of radius 57.7 m with a speed of 16.5 m/s. The coefficient of static friction between the car and the road is 0.93. Assuming your car doesn't skid, what is the force exerted on it by static friction?

Centripetal force comes from friction:
what is mass*velocity squared divided by radius? That is the force directed inward.
The last data in the problem is not revelant.
