(b)

When the road is dry,

Answer #1

Mandy is driving her car east at a constant speed of 65
mi/h.
Paul is driving his car south at a constant speed of 60
mi/h.
Find the rate at which the distance of Mandy and Paul is
increasing after 2 hours.

A 2300 kg car moving at an initial speed of 25 m/s along a
horizontal road skids to a stop in 50 m. (Note: When stopping
without skidding and using conventional brakes, 100 percent of the
kinetic energy is dissipated by friction within the brakes. With
regenerative braking, such as that used in hybrid vehicles, only 70
percent of the kinetic energy is dissipated.)
(a) Find the energy dissipated by friction. 718750 Incorrect:
Your answer is incorrect. kJ
(b) Find...

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 car, 1110 kg, is traveling down a horizontal road at 20.0 m/s
when it locks up its brakes. The coefficient of friction between
the tires and road is 0.901. How much distance will it take to
bring the car to a stop?

A curve of radius 20 m is banked so that a 1100 kg car traveling
at 30 km/h can round it even if the road is so icy that the
coefficient of static friction is approximately zero. The
acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s 2 .
Find the minimum speed at which a car can travel around this
curve without skidding if the coefficient of static friction
between the road and the tires is 0.3. Answer in units of m/s.

Calculate the maximum deceleration of a car that is heading down
a 11.5° slope (one that makes an angle of 11.5° with the
horizontal) under the following road conditions. You may assume
that the weight of the car is evenly distributed on all four tires
and that the static coefficient of friction is involved--that is,
the tires are not allowed to slip during the deceleration
A) on dry concret
B) on wet Concret
C) on ice

A race-car driver is driving her car at a record-breaking speed
of 225 km/h. The first turn on the course is banked at 15, and the
car’s mass is 1450 kg.
find :
a) Calculate the radius
of curvature for this turn.
b) Calculate the
centripetal acceleration of the car.
c) If the car
maintains a circular track around the curve (does not move up or
down the bank), what is the magnitude of the force of static
friction?...

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...

The Daytona 500 stock car race is held on a track that is
approximately 2.5 mi long, and the turns are banked at an angle of
31°. It is currently possible for cars to travel through the turns
at a speed of about 164 mi/h. Assuming these cars are on the verge
of slipping into the outer wall of the racetrack, find the
coefficient of static friction between the tires and the track.
(Assume that the track is circular.)

You are driving your car uphill along a straight road. Suddenly,
see a car cross a red light and enter the intersection, just ahead
of you. Immediately apply your brakes and skid in a straight line
to stop, leaving a mark of 100 ft long by sliding. A policeman
observes the whole incident, gives a ticket to the driver of the
car for passing a red light. It also gives a ticket to you for
exceeding the 30 mph speed...
