Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Chelsea on Monday, March 31, 2014 at 12:08pm.

I need to check my answers for the following:
An Aston Martin V8 Vantage sports car has a maximum “lateral acceleration” of
0.96 “g’s”, after which the car begins to skid out of its turn.

2.1 Calculate the coefficient of static friction between the car’s tyres and the road.

2.2 Determine the minimum radius of unbanked curve the car can negotiate while travelling at
a constant 120 km/h.

2.3 If the road is banked at 15.0°, determine the range of speeds at which the car can safely
negotiate the curve in wet weather, when the coefficient of static friction is reduced by 20%.
