Answer to Question #73536 in Mechanics | Relativity for CP
During a freeway safety review, you are studying a curve that is essentially 1/8 of a circle with a radius of 0.5 miles. The curve is banked so that the road makes an angle of 4 degrees to the horizontal throughout the curve. Your job is to begin the review by considering the worst-case scenario, a slick, ice-covered road, and finding the speed a standard passenger car (about 2000 lbs) must travel in order to maintain a horizontal path through the turn. The team you?re working with will use this information along with other data to determine the speed limit on this road
