You are exiting a highway and need to slow down on the off-ramp in order to make the curve. It is rainy and the coefficient of static friction between your tires and the road is only 0.2. If the radius of the off-ramp curve is 32 m, then to what speed do you need to slow down the car in order to make the curve without sliding? o Centripetal force = Force of friction o m *v^2/r = (coeff)*

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
