## Banked Circular Highway Curve? Find friction

A banked circular highway curve is designed for traffic moving at 65 km/h. The radius of the curve is 230 m. Traffic is moving along the highway at 35 km/h on a rainy day. What is the minimum coefficient of friction between tires and road that will allow cars to negotiate the turn without sliding off the road?

I've figured out an angle which equals close to 20 degrees but from there I have no clue what to do. Any Help?

really? wow, i live in gainesville place.... but yeah, this crap is making me angry... we're trying though
 my bro's gf who is here lives in sled hall....

 so have any of you uf people done any of the other problems on part 3? (of the 3 that are due tonight?) cause thats where we're strugglin the most, weve gotten almost all of the other 2 sections.... we have one more on each section... (the ant and the abc blocks with pullies)
 im over in Murphree Hall (near Fletcher)
 i got an answer of .14 and it's wrong
 you have an aol name ginger?
 hey, I need help here too, it's the only one I can't get
