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

A 162kg car rounds a curve with a radius of 267 m at 43 m/s. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2

a. (already solved) - What force must the road exert on the road to keep the car on the curve.

1121.864 Newtons

b. - At what angle must the curve be banked to give a passenger the most comfortable ride?

2. Relevant equations

Centripetal force = mass x velocity2/radius

Centripetal acceleration = velocity2/radius

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no attempt. I do not understand what part "b" of the problem is asking or how to solve for it.

I don't even really want a solution, I just need someone to explain to me how to solve what angle the curve should be banked at, and I'll solve it myself.
