1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In Formula 1 race, the cars approach curves from the outside, cut through to the inside, and then drift again to the outside (red path AA’ in the figure). However, the blue path (BB’) in the figure is shorter. Then why do not the drivers follow the shortest path? Give answer to this question by proving that tred (time to travel red path) is shorter than tblue (time to travel blue path). Only given values are RA = 32 m and RB = 10 m, and static friction coefficient of the road is μs =1.2. Assume cars make motion with constant speed throughout the path. Important: The speeds of the cars do not change due to static or kinetic frictions. However, only static friction acts to the car as a centripetal force when the car makes a circular motion. Therefore, first find maximum possible speed of a car while making a circular motion. 2. Relevant equations m.g.μs=m.V2/r T= 2∏r/V 3. The attempt at a solution I tried m.g.μs=m.V2/r equation and found V max values for both cars (19,3 for the car on the red path and 10.8 for the blue path) and then for T values i used equation 2∏r/V and found T for blue path is shorter. but in the question it wants me to prove that tred is shorter :/ i attached the picture of question. where am i wrong? thanks for helpp!!
