A velodrome is built for use in the Olympics (see the figure below). The radius of curvature of the surface is 17.1 m. At what angle should the surface be banked for cyclists moving at 11 m/s? (Choose an angle so that no frictional force is needed to keep the cyclists in their circular path. Large banking angles are used in velodromes.)
