Consider a biker riding on level ground as shown. She wants to have the maximum forward acceleration possible, which means experiencing the maximum horizontal force without her wheels slipping. Draw the free body diagram for the bike accelerating forward.
kinetic friction is zero
The Attempt at a Solution
there would be weight going down from each wheel (dependent on the balance of the rider), a Normal Force from each going up, rolling friction on the front wheel and static friction in the direction of acceleration on the rear wheel
Is that correct? Would the force of static friction only be dependent on the weight the rider puts on the rear wheel?
