### What is called the force between the tire and the road?

resistive force (friction)

### When you use the handbrakes on a bike what force do you apply?

The force you apply is technically called applied force. It is transfered and used to move the brake pads together. At that point, the frictional force between the brake pads and the tire slows down the tire.

### What force gives wheels traction to grip the road?

Friction between the tire rubber and the road give traction.

### What is the maximum speed with which a 2500 kg car can round a turn of radius 60 m on a level road if the coefficient of static friction between tire and road is 7?

Really? A coefficient of friction of 7? Unheard of. Probably 0.7 Use F = mv^2 / r where F will be the centripetal force as well as the frictional force, (mu)mg. Solve for v.

### Does speed affect the friction between a road and a skidding tire?

Speed does not affect the force of friction.

### What are the frictional forces while riding a unicycle?

there's friction between saddle and butt, between shoes and pedals, between tire and rim, between tire and ground.

### Why is the force on the steering greater when the tire is flat?

There is more surface area contact between the road and the flat tire translating into more friction between the two surfaces, which increases the amount of force required to change direction.

traction

No

### When is friction a useful force that acts between objects?

Most forms of conventional movement require friction. For example, a car could not go anywhere if not for the the friction between the rubber tire and the road surface.

### The weight of a car is 8400N Each tire supports a weight of 2100N The pressure exerted by each tire on the road is 20 Ncm How do you calculate the area of each tire in contact with the road?

Each tire supports 2100 N, and the pressure exerted by each tire is 20 N per centimeter2, so Pressure = Force / Area Pressure = 20 N per centimeter2 Force = 2100 N rearranging the equation for Area Area = Force / Pressure Area = 2100 / 20 = 105 centimeter2 So each tire has 105 cm2 touching the road.
