1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Calculate the maximum speed a vehicle can travel round a horizontal bend of radius 50m without skidding if the coefficient of friction between tyres and road is 0.5. 2. Relevant equations I am not sure about the equation. As radius and coeff of friction are given, maybe something along these lines? v = μr 3. The attempt at a solution I am puzzled as there is no mention of the weight of the car. Would this not be required in order to work it out? Thanks a lot.
