(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A car drives around a curve with radius 410 m at a speed of 32m/s. The road is not banked. The mass of the car is 1400kg.

A. What is the frictional force on the car?

B. Does the frictional force necessarily have magnitude μsN? Explain.

2. Relevant equations

I'm not quite sure, I assume that:

fs,max = μsN

though I don't know how to find the coefficient of static friction since I don't know fs,max.

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't even know where to begin to find the coefficient of static friction... any hints would really help. Thanks
