If you wish to reduce the stress (which is related to centripetal force) on high-speed tires, would you use large- or small diameter tires? Explain.

Solution 3CQ Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 The centripetal force is denoted as, Here is the mass, is the speed, is the radius and is the force. The radius is inversely proportional to the centripetal force. The bigger the radius the smaller the centripetal force. So on bigger tires, less centripetal force exerts. Hence less stress on the tire.
