A car of weight W = 12.3 kN makes a turn on a track that is banked at an angle of θ = 20.9°. Inside the car, hanging from a short string tied to the rear-view mirror, is an ornament. As the car turns, the ornament swings out at an angle of φ = 28.3° measured from the vertical inside the car. What is the force of static friction between the car and the road?
