## Homework Statement

Consider a wet banked roadway, where there is a coefficient of static friction of 0.300 and a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.250 between the tires and the roadway. The radius of the curve is 50.0 m. If the banking angle is 25˚, what is the maximum speed an automobile can have before sliding up the banking?

## Homework Equations

f=static friction

θ=25˚ angle

μ=friction coefficient=.300 static

r=50.0m

m=mass

g=gravity

Using ΣF=ma Newton's 2nd law:

x-> ΣF=μmgcos(25˚) + N*sin(25˚)=mv^2/r

y-> ΣF=Ncos(25˚)=μmgsin(25˚) +mg

## The Attempt at a Solution

masses cancel I know.

x-> .300*9.8cos(25˚) + 9.8*sin(25˚)=v^2/50.0

y-> 9.8*cos(25˚)=.300*9.8sin(25˚) + 9.8

and that's as far as I get. Can anybody please explain what I need to do next?

Thanks
