1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A car starts from rest and accelerates around a flat curve of radius R = 31.7 m. The tangential component of the car’s acceleration remains constant at at = 2.97 m/s2, while the centripetal acceleration increases to keep the car on the curve as long as possible. The coefficient of friction between the tires and the road is μk = 0.851. What distance does the car travel around the curve before it begins to skid? (Be sure to include both the tangential and centripetal components of the acceleration.) 2. Relevant equations F=(mv^2)/r F=ma F=μN 3. The attempt at a solution mv^2/r=μN mv^2/r=μmg μg=v^2/r v^2=rμg v^2=v(initial)^2+2ax rμg=2ax x=rμg/(2a) x=(31.7)(.851)(9.81)/(2(9.81)) x=44.55m This is how i attempted the problem, but am apparently incorrect. What am i doing wrong?
