# Vehicle in Circular Motion#

## Part 1#

A car of mass 2100.0 $$\rm{kg}$$ in uniform circular motion accelerates towards the _________ of the circle due to the force of __________ friction between the car’s tires and the road. Please fill in the blanks with one of the options below (The choices are presented in the same order as they should appear in the sentence.)

• centre, kinetic

• outside, static

• centre, static

• outside, kinetic

## Part 2#

If the car moves at 94.0 $$\rm{km/h}$$ around a circle of radius 99.0 $$\rm{m}$$, find the acceleration of the car in SI units.

Please enter in a numeric value.

## Part 3#

Draw a free body diagram in the $$xz$$ plane (the plane shown on the right of Fig.1) to show the forces acting on the car in the directions perpendicular to the car’s motion. Please upload a pdf titled “fbd1”.

## Part 4#

Find the size of the frictional force that keeps the car in circular motion.

Please enter in a numeric value.

## Part 5#

Above what speed would the car’s frictional force be overcome as the car tries to follow this curve?

$$\mu_s =$$ , $$\mu_k =$$ , $$\mu_r =$$

Please enter in a numeric value.

## Part 6#

If the curve was banked toward the centre of the circle at an angle of 20.0$$^{\circ}$$ as shown on the right of Fig. 2, draw a free body diagram for the forces acting on the car in the directions perpendicular to the direction of motion as the car moves around the circle at 94.0 $$\rm{km/h}$$.

## Part 7#

Resolving your vectors, solve for the force of friction required to keep the car in uniform circular motion at this speed with the banked curve.
