Question description

The equation below gives the maximum velocity in miles per hour that a vehicle can safely travel around a curve of radius r feet when friction is f. If the velocity is greater than Vmax, the tires will slip. Engineers find that under snowy conditions, Vmax = 15 miles per hour for a freeway off-ramp that has a radius of 50 feet. To the nearest tenth, what is the coefficient of friction for the off-ramp in these conditions?

V max= √14.88fr
