Homework Help: Uniform Circular Motion Problem

  1. Oct 13, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    1. A car is safely negotiating an unbanked circular turn at 21 m/s and the maximum static force acts on the tires. Suddenly a wet patch on the road reduces the static frictional force by a factor of three. At what speed must the driver slow to in order to safely continue on their journey?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
