Suppose the designated speed for the ramp is to be 13.2 m/s (29.5 mi/h) and the radius of the curve is 34 m.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The coefficient of static friction between the tires and the road is 0.33. What maximum speed could a car negotiate the exit ramp without skidding?

Vmax = square root of (µ(static) g r)

Vmax = Maximum velocity

g = Acceleration due to gravity (9.80 m/sec^2)

r = Radius of curve

µ = Coefficient of static friction

Vmax = 10.485 m/s

however, this answer wasn't right. what am i doing wrong? THANKS.
