    Car taking an un-banked circular turn:

    A car is safely negotiating an un-banked circular turn at a speed of 21m/s. The max static frictional force acts on the tires. Suddenly a wet patch in the road reduces the maximum static frictional force by a factor of three. If the car is to continue safely around the curve, to what speed must the driver slow the car?
