1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am running to school at 6m/s when I hit a patch of icy sidealk. The coefficient of friction between the ice and my shoes is 0.16. I wish to turn my 55kg frame to the left. What is the smallest turn I can make? v = 6 m/s μ = 0.16 m = 55 kg 2. Relevant equations Fnet = mv^2/r Ff = μFn Fnet = ma 3. The attempt at a solution Assume that up and left are positive. Fnet = ma Fg + Fn = ma -539 + Fn = 0 Fn = 539 Ff = μFn Ff = 0.16 (539) Ff = 86.24 Fnet = mv^2/r Ff = mv^2/r 86.24 = 55(6)^2/r 86.24 = 1980/r r = 23 m I'm not sure if that's the answer or what to do next, or even if what I did is the right method. The question is kind of confusing me because I don't fully understand how the person is moving.
