Skidding of Vehicle on a Leveled Road

When a vehicle turns on a circular path, it requires centripetal force (Fig. 3). If friction provides this centripetal force, then the vehicle can move in circular path safely if, i.e.,
Friction force ≥ Required centripetal force
∴ 37015.png

Fig. 3
This is the maximum speed by which a vehicle can turn in a circular path of radius r, where coefficient of friction between the road and tyre is μ.
