I know that this problem will need that centripetal acceleration is equal to velocity squared over the radius. a_c=V^2/R

Also, F≤μN, the equation of static friction.

Possibly the Circumference of a circle C=2(pi)r

I am assuming that the a_c has to be equal to the static friction. However, the only problems with static friction have been blocks sitting on level surfaces and inclines. I know that a_c points towards the center of the circle, but which way does the friction force go?
