What is the maximum speed with which a 1300 kg car can make a 180 degree turn on a flat road

  • science -

    Are we talking about an automobile or a train car?

    The answer would depend on variables like the height of car and the location of it's "center of gravity."

    Also, I assume you mean, 'How fast can the car go without tipping over?' Whether the car is on tracks and the kind of suspension it has are also important.

    With increased speed comes increased "centrifugal force," but I imagine you already know that. There must be a formula for determining how much the centrifugal force increases as the speed increases.

    Once you have gathered the above information, I hope someone else can help you, because I'm terrible at physics!
