Question

An automobile moves on a level horizontal road in a circular path of radius 30.5m. The coefficients of friction between the tires and the road are Ps = 0.50 and Pk = 0.1, respectively. The maximum speed with which this car can round this curve is?

Answer #1

a = v^2/r

What causes this acceleration? Traction...also known as static
friction.

What must exist for there to be any type of dry friction? A normal
force.

The normal force will do what ever is necessary to prevent the car
from sinking in to the asphalt. On an unbanked, flat roadway, the
normal force is only responsible for opposing the force of gravity.
It is thus:

N = m*g

Relating to maximum deliverable force of static friction:

F = mu_s*m*g

And Newton's 2nd law:

Fnet = F = m*a

Substitute centripetal acceleration and parameters of maximum
friction:

mu_s*m*g = m*v^2/r

solve for v (notice m's cancel and result is independent of
mass):

v = sqrt(mu_s*r*g)

Data:

mu_s:=0.5; r:=30.5 m; g:=9.8 N/kg;

Result:

v = 12.22 meters/second

1) You are making a circular turn in your car on a horizontal
road when you hit a big patch of ice, causing the force of friction
between the tires and the road to become zero. While the car is on
the ice, itA) moves along a straight-line path away from the center of the
circle.B) moves along a straight-line path toward the center of the
circle.C) moves along a straight-line path in its original
direction.D) continues to follow a...

A 1000-kg car travels across the crest of a circular hump of
radius 30.0 m. What is the maximum
speed at which the car can go over the hump without losing
contact with the road? The coefficients of
friction between the road and the car’s tires are μ s = 0.3 and
μ k = 0.2. Use g = 10 m/s 2

A car rounds a 50 meter radius curve that is banked such that a
car rounding it does not need friction at a speed of 12 m/s. What
is the bank angle of the road?
The coefficient of kinetic friction between the tires and the
road is 0.5 and the coefficient of static friction between the
tires and the road is 0.8. If the same road were flat (instead of
banked), determine the maximum speed with which the coar could...

A small 0.430-kg object moves on a frictionless horizontal table
in a circular path of radius 2.40 m. The angular speed is 7.73
rad/s. The object is attached to a string of negligible mass that
passes through a small hole in the table at the center of the
circle. Someone under the table begins to pull the string downward
to make the circle smaller. If the string will tolerate a tension
of no more than 191 N, what is the...

A small 0.441-kg object moves on a frictionless horizontal table
in a circular path of radius 2.26 m, see image below. The angular
speed is 7.09 rad/s. The object is attached to a string of
negligible mass that passes through a small hole in the table at
the center of the circle. Someone under the table begins to pull
the string downward to make the circle smaller. If the string will
tolerate a tension of no more than 1350 N,...

The friction between the tires of a car and a flat road provides
the centripetal force for a
turn. For a 1800 kg car travelling at 25 m/s on a curve of radius
100 m:
a. Calculate the normal force on the car from the road.
b. Calculate the centripetal force required to turn the car
safely.
c. Calculate the minimum coefficient of static friction between the
tires and road for the car
to turn safely.
d. Ice on the...

A 1000-kg car is traveling around a curve having a radius of 100
m that is banked at an angle of 15.0°. If 30m/s is the maximum
speed this car can make the curve without sliding, what is the
coefficient of friction between the road and the tires?

A car moves clockwise around a circular path with radius 74.4 m.
The car started from rest at the point farthest to the west on the
path, and has a constant tangential acceleration of 2.50
m/s2.
1, After the car has traveled one-fourth of the circumference,
what is the speed of the car?
2. At this point, what is the radial acceleration component of
the car?
3. At this same point, what is the magnitude of the
total acceleration of the...

1) A car is traveling around a circular portion of road banked
at an incline of 20 degrees to the horizonal. If the radius of the
turn is 75 m and the coefficient of static friction is 0.75 A) What
is the maximum speed the car can take the turn without losing
traction? B) At what speed would the static friction be zero?

A level road makes a 90 degree turn with a 73m radius of a
curvature. What is the maximum speed for a car to negotiate this
turn.
a) When the road is dry and the coefficient of static friction
is .88
