    A car is on an inclined plane (shoulder of the road) at angle theta. The car has mass of 1.6Mg and center of mass at G.

    G is located 2.5 ft vertical from the inclined plane (shoulder of the road).

    If the coefficient of static friction between shoulder of road and tires is us=0.4, determine greatest slope, theta, the incline can have without causing the car to slip or tip over if car travels along shoulder at constant velocity.

    Wheels (points A and B) are 5ft apart horizontally on plane.
