A car goes around a curve on a road that is banked at an angle of 30.5 . Even though the road is slick, the car will stay on the road without any friction between its tires and the road when its speed is 19.0 .

What is the radius of the curve?

    force up the hill=force down the hill

    mv^2/r cos30.5=mg Sin30.5

    solve for r.

    nvm. i got it. 84 was wrong... thanks for your help!
