1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data This isn't a problem from a textbook or homework but just a general question. Say there's a car traveling in a circle and that the track has some coefficient of kinetic friction µ. What would make the car skid? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I'm thinking that it skids when the centripetal is greater than the friction force? Not sure why but that's just my intuition.
