A 1.00 x10^3 kg car is moving through a flat curve on a road at a velocity of 30.0 m/s. If the coefficient of friction between the road and the tires is 0.600, the radius of the curve is

2. Relevant equations

r=v^2/(coefficitent of friction)(g), r=mv^2/F

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried two ways so solve this question, but im not sure which was is correct.

the first thing i did was, find F by multiplying 9.81m/s2 and the mass (1000). then plugging that into the r=v^2/f. Then i used the first formula i provided above and just plugged all the variables in (excluding mass). Does the mass need to somehow be in there?
