Given: A 1650 kg car, coefficient of static friction between rear driving wheels is 0.8. You can neglect the rolling friction of the front wheels, and the mass of the front and rear wheels is negligible compared to the mass of the car. Find the normal forces N A and N B under the condition of maximum acceleration. ma Gy ma Gx I α x y E of M. x y M Algebra What if decided to do moments about wheel A?
