A cyclist speeding at 18 km/h on a level road takes a sharp circular turn of radius 3 m without reducing the speed. The co-efficient of static friction between the tyres and the road is 0.1. Will the cyclist slip while taking the turn?
3. Data insufficient
4. Depends on the weight of the cyclist
A circular racetrack of radius 300 m is banked at an angle of 15°. If the coefficient of friction between the wheels of a race-car and the road is 0.2, what is the (a) optimum speed of the race-car to avoid wear and tear on its tyres, and (b) maximum permissible speed to avoid slipping?
In the figure given below, a wooden block of mass 2 kg rests on a soft horizontal floor.

What is the force of the block on the floor after the floor yields?

What angle does the rope make with the vertical in equilibrium? (Take g = 10 ). Neglect the mass of the rope.
Two identical billiard balls strike a rigid wall with the same speed but at different angles, and get reflected without any change in speed, as shown in fig. The ratio of the magnitudes of impulses imparted to the balls by the wall is:
