yes, p = .25 the mean better be ten/4 :) which is 2.5 This is a binomial distribution mean = n p = 10 * .25 = 2.5 (remarkable :) sigma^2 = n p (1-p) =10 (.25)(.75) = 1.875 sigma = sqrt 1.875 = 1.37

v^2/R = 9.24^2/18.4 = 4.64 m/s^2 centripetal acceleration so apparent weight on road = m (g-4.64) = 1800 (9.81 - 4.64) = 9306 N
