- Homework Statement
- A pair of fuzzy dice is hanging by a string from the rearview window. While making a right turn at 60 mph, the fuzzy dice makes an angle of 23 degrees from the vertical.

(1) Determine the radius of the circular path of the fuzzy dice.

(2) What is the mechanical force acting as the centripetal force on the following entities:

(a) - The fuzzy dice

(b) - The car

(c) - The driver

- Relevant Equations
- None

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it is not possible to solve (1) with all the data that's given.

As for (2), I have come up with the following solutions:

(a) - The tension in the string acts as the centripetal force on the fuzzy dice

(b) - The frictional force between the road and the car

(c) - None?
