(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Total mass = 260 kg

Coefficient of Friction = 1.00

r = 4 m

gmax = 4 g

a) Find the minimum speed to keep the rider on the wall of death.

b) Find the maximum speed inside the wall of death of the motorcycle based on gmax

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\mu[/tex] x (mv^2/r) = mg

Fc = mv^2/r

Gforce = mv^2/r

3. The attempt at a solution

a)

V = [tex]\sqrt{ g r / \mu}[/tex]

V = 6.26 m/s

b)

Gforce = mv2/r

4 = 0.26g x v2 / 4 m

V = 7.84 m/s

I dont know if it is right...
