For a car traveling at velocity v around a curve of radius r, there is a particular angle 0 (theta) that the curve ought be banked so that the car is least likely to slide sideways. Show that this special angle is given by O=tan-1[(VxV0/(rg)]© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 5:04 pm ad1c9bdddf
See attached file for the diagram.
fc is the centrifugal force and mg ...
The solution fully explains the problem complete with a diagram. The special angles are computed.
