Referring to Example At what speed will the force of static friction exerted on the car by the road be equal to half the weight of the car? The mass of the car is m = 1200 kg, the radius of the corner is r = 45 m, and the coefficient of static friction between the tires and the road is µs = 0.82. (b) Suppose that the mass of the car is now doubled, and that it moves with a speed that again makes the force of static friction equal to half the car’s weight. Is this new speed greater than, less than, or equal to the speed in part (a)?
