A particular unbanked turn in the road is shaped like a circle with a radius of 30 meters. A car
with a mass of 1500 kg can safely go around this turn at a maximum speed of 17 m/s. What is the
coefficient of static friction between the car's tires and the road? #### Earn Coins

A car is safely negotiating an unbanked circular turn at a speed of 18 m/s. The road is dry, and the maximum static frictional force acts on the tires. Suddenly a long wet patch in the road decreases the maximum static frictional force to one third of its dry-road value. If the car is to continue safely around the curve, to what speed must the dirver slow the car?
