Could anyone explain to me how to go about solving these problems?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Example:

A Car is driven around a circe with a radius of 200m, bank angle 10 degrees. The static frictional coefficient is 0.60. Calculate the maximum velocity the car can travel (Vmax).

Please help!

I did this, but am not sure it is the correct way:

(.6 + tan10)/(1-.6tan10) = v^2/rg

v^2 = 1703.36

v = 41/ 27 m/s

Is this correct or am I totally off??
