A racetrack has the shape of an inverted cone, as the drawing shows. On this surface the cars race in circles that are parallel to the ground. For a speed of 34.0 m/s, at what value of the distance $d$ should a driver locate his car if he wishes to stay on a circular path without depending on friction?

Newton's Laws of Motion are three physical laws that, laid the foundation for classical mechanics. They describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it, and its motion in response to those forces. These three laws have been expressed in several ways, over nearly three centuries, and can be summarised as follows: In his 1687 "Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica" ("Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy"), Isaac Newton set out three laws of motion. The first law defines the force F, the second law defines the mass m, and the third law defines the acceleration a. The first law states that if the net force acting upon a body is zero, its velocity will not change; the second law states that the acceleration of a body is proportional to the net force acting upon it, and the third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In physics, dynamics is the branch of physics concerned with the study of forces and their effect on matter, commonly in the context of motion. In everyday usage, "dynamics" usually refers to a set of laws that describe the motion of bodies under the action of a system of forces. The motion of a body is described by its position and its velocity as the time value varies. The science of dynamics can be subdivided into, Dynamics of a rigid body, which deals with the motion of a rigid body in the frame of reference where it is considered to be a rigid body. Dynamics of a continuum, which deals with the motion of a continuous system, in the frame of reference where the system is considered to be a continuum.

in this problem, we have to find the distance being a car and the very tip of an inverted cone label here, if we assume that it is traveling in a circle around the cone and that there is no force of friction, So this is really just on. Ah, banked curve problem. We don't actually need the second side of the cone. What this problem doubt comes down to is just a scenario like this would you've seen before in many other banked curve problems. Now, when we draw the forces for this, we can see that we has always have gravity pointing straight down as well as our normal force perpendicular to the surface. Now that normal force is going to be split into two components a vertical one of why as well as a horizontal one with our angle, Seda right here, just label in red. Now we can see that our why component of our force or a normal force must be equal toe mg right? Isn't it pointing straight up countering that we could also see from our diagram of state, uh, that that force must be equal to our normal force Times the CO sign of theta. Now, using the same logic, we can see that our horizontal component, which is equal to the um, is equal to FN times sign of data. And since we're moving in a circular motion and this horizontal component is pointing straight inward towards the center of that move of that motion, it must be equal to M. V squared over on. Now, from our first equation here, we can see that F N is equal to M G over coast and data so we can plug that into our second equation in order to get that mg times the tangent. If data is equal to M V squared over r and now we have all the parts that we need to solve for a radius well can cancel out our masses and we get that our is equal to the squared over G 10 Saito. All right. The other thing to consider is that we're not actually solving for are in this case, right. The problem asks us for specifically D, which is this condition of this portion parallel to the slope of the curve. Our would be all drawn in green, this line down here so we're looking for is actually the decisions were like, Well, what we're looking for is deep, and we can see from the setup of this problem that are must be equal to de times the co sign data and we plug in the same math that we had earlier. Well, that's left to do. Now he's plugging our numbers. D co sign 40 degrees is 34 meters per second squared, divided by 9.8 meters per second. Squared times The tension, the 40 And when we sold this. Really? So for this we get that d is equal to 183.502 mirrors, and that is equal to our final reason.
