Homework Help: PHYSICS

Posted by Lindsay on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 9:18pm.

A car is safely negotiating an unbanked circular turn at a speed of 29 m/s. The road is dry, and the maximum static frictional force acts on the tires. Suddenly a long wet patch in the road decreases the maximum static frictional force to one-ninth of its dry-road value. If the car is to continue safely around the curve, to what speed must the driver slow the car?
