Centripetal acceleration acting on a parcel

  1. Apr 18, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A parcel sits on a seat angled θ to the horizontal. The car is travelling along a local radius of curvature of 80m and is travelling 20m/s at the dip. For what value of theta will the parcel not slip?

    Will someone check that my force diagram is correct?
