A vehicle travelling at 29m/s on a level road surface which curved to a radius of 50m about to overturn The centre of gravity at centre of the 1.5m track.
a. At what height is the centre of gravity
b. At what velocity could the vehicle negotiate the same curve, out banked to an angle of 20°, with any weight leaving the inside wheel.
c. What velocity could be attained on a level road curved to the radius before sliding commence if the coefficient of adhesion is 0.65?
