Centripetal acceleration

  1. Nov 3, 2009 #1
    A car rounds a corner of radius r= 45 m. If the coefficient of static friction between the car and the road is= 0.82, what is the greatest speed the car can have in the corner without skidding?

    am i in the right direction with v^2=.82*9.8*45m? then square root both sides for the answer?
