Question #17412

A BMW of mass 1500kg drives around a curve of radius 36m.
If the driver keeps a constant speed of 18m/s, what is the force acting on the car?
If the maximum friction the tires can supply to the road is 15660N, what is the maximum velocity the car can take this curve at?
If the driver wants to take a curve at 22.5m/s, what is the minimum radius of the curve so that the driver does not lose traction?
(hint: use the tires maximum traction force from part II)
Which way is the force pushing the car?
