A crate of mass 96 kg is loaded onto the back of a flatbed truck. The coefficient of static friction between the box and the truck bed is 0.14. What is the smallest radius of curvature, R, the truck can take, if the speed with which it is going around a circle is 2.9 m/s?

physics 
bobpursley,
max force without moving=mu*mg
max acceleartion=maxforce/m=mug
mu*g=V^2/r solve for r
