A race car driver drives her 1500 kg car around a circular turn, which is banked at an angle of 20 degrees to the horizontal. If the car is traveling around the frictionless curve of radius 100m,
a) What is providing the center-seeking force on the car? (ie. centripetal force)
b) What other force could provide a center-seeking force in a real life situation?

  • Physics -

    a) gravity, the car tends to slide down the bank.
    b) friction.

  • Physics -
