    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    you are making a circular turn in your car when you hit a patch of ice causing friction to be zero, while the car is on the ice it:
    a continues to follow the circular path but with a larger radius than before
    b moves along a path that is neither straight or sircular
    c moves along a straight path line

    Can you explain a little more why you think it's C? (Newton's laws of motion might be helpful here.)
