A car can be driven around a 120 m radius curve at constant speed without sliding if the maximum centripetal acceleration is 0.130g.
(a) What is the maximum speed that the car can travel around the curve without sliding?
(b) If the car was on a circular race track with this same radius, how long would it take for the car to complete one lap at the maximum speed?
