You are driving with a friend who is sitting to your right on the passenger side of the front seat of your car. You would like to be closer to your friend so you decide to use physics to achieve your goal by making a quick turn.

If the coefficient of static friction between your friend and the car seat is 0.550 and you keep driving at a constant speed of 19m/s, what is the maximum radius (in meters) you could make your turn and still have your friend slide your way?

2. Relevant equations

So far: v= 19.0 m/s

a = 0

[tex]\mu[/tex]s= 0.55

How do I approach this problem?
