An antiskid braking system limits the braking force to a value at which the wheels of the truck are just about to slide. Knowing that the coefficient of static friction between the road and the wheels is 0.65, determine the shortest time needed for the truck to slow down. The acceleration of a particle is directly proportional to the square of the time t When t = 0 the particle is at x = 24 m. Knowing that at t = 6 s, x = 96 m and ? = 18 m/s. express x and ? in terms of t . A car is traveling on a banked road at a constant speed v . Determine the range of values of v for which the car does not skid. Express your answer in terms of the radius r of the curve, the banking angle ? , and the angle of static friction ? s between the tires and the pavement.
