A concrete highway curve of radius is banked at a angle. What is the maximum speed with which a rubber tired car can take this curve without sliding?

The maximum sped the car can move without sliding is .

A concrete highway curve of radius is banked at a angle.

We need to draw a graph for analyze the situation.

From the graph we can obtain the expression for the horizontal direction;

Where,

: The maximum force required

: Normal force

: Radius of the curve

: mass of the car

: Banking angle

Frictional force

Therefore,

................(a)

Expression for vertical force:

.................(b)

Dividing expression (a) by expression (b), we get

Therefore, the maximum speed the care can move without sliding is .
