1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A car is negotiating a flat circular curve of radius 50 m with a speed of 20 m/s. The maximum centripetal force (provided by static friction) is 1.2 × 104 N. What is the centripetal acceleration of the car? 2. Relevant equations MAc = MV^2/R 3. The attempt at a solution 20^2 / 50 = 8 m/s^2 ?
