(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

a racecourse is designed with curves with a radius of 200m and a 10degree banking. What is the maximum speed a car can negotiate the curve without friction?

2. Relevant equations

newtons 3 laws

3. The attempt at a solution

tanTheta = v^2/gR

tan10 = v^2/(9.8 * 200m)

v = 345 m/s^2

is this right?
