1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/b]

a curve of radius 30m is banked so that a 950kg car traveling 40 km/h can round it even if the road is so icy that the coefficient of static friction is approximately zero. Find the range of speeds 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

2. Relevant equations

I've already solved for the angle and my problem is only how to equate^^

3. The attempt at a solution

Given

km/h = ??????

angle of slope = 22.78 degrees

coefficient of friction = .3

mass = 950 kg

weight = 9310 N

radius = 30m

coefficient of friction X Normal Force = Force of Friction

[tex] n sintheta + f costheta = mv^2 divided by radius[/tex]

sorry can't figure out latex
