(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Velocity of a car skidding

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 2.20 103 kg car rounds a circular turn of radius 30.0 m. If the road is flat and the coefficient of static friction between the tires and the road is 0.8, how fast can the car go without skidding?

2. Relevant equations

Fcentripital=ma

a=v2/t

v=2πr/t

3. The attempt at a solution

So i used F=ma and substituted F with Coefficient*mass*gravity and for ma i used

m 2πr/t and solved for t. Then i used the t for the velocity equation and solved it. I got 24.0 m/s but it was wrong. What did i do wrong?
