Which force is responsible for holding a car in a frictionless banked curve?
Why do road curves elevated from the outer part?
so that you have both a positive camber to assit turning and also to aid water drainage A road is "banked" (that's the term for the side-to-side sloping that you are talking about) so that, from the perspective of a car traveling along the road, the angle of the curve is lessened, making it easier for a driver to negotiate the curve. To understand this better, take the following extreme example of banking. Imagine that a road is banked a full...

A highway curve of radius is banked at angle Coefficient of F static between the road surface and the tires of sports car is mu s constant speed of the sports car round the curve for min tire wear?
Nope. It's to help the centripetal force so you won't swirl out. It's in the physics of the thing. . . . Don't quite completely understand it myself. ...

Why are the roads banked?
Newton stated that a body will continue in a straight line unless acted on by an external force. To go round a corner, the wheels are turned, and the friction of the tyres provides a centripetal force which persuades the car to abandon its straight line and go round the corner. This happens whether the road is banked or not. However, this force on the tyre does not act through the centre of mass of the vehicle. In physical terms, this...
What does the French word 'devers' mean?
The word 'dÃ©vers' is a masculine singular noun. It means banking, be it of rails or of roads. A relevant warning sign to the motorist is 'virage en dÃ©vers', which means a dangerous 'banked curve' up ahead. ...
Why does nuclear fission result in such large amounts of energy?
E=Mc^2. Also I suggest looking up "curve of binding energy" as I can't draw it here. There is about 1000 times the energy holding the nucleus together as there is holding the electrons in orbit about it. ...

What is Difference between simple curve and simple closed curve?
simple curve is a curve which doesnot cross itself,it neednot be closed....... but a simple closed curve is a curve which is simple and also closed. every simple closed curve is a simple curve but not vice versa. ...

What is difference between individual supply curve and market supply curve?
The difference between individual supply curve and the market supply curve is tat individual supply curve is like a firm. To be able to get the market supply curve you have to have the individual supply curve. ...

What is the difference between demand function and demand curve?
A "demand curve" is Price vs. Quantity, holding all else constant; whereas, a "demand function" is Quantity vs. Price, holding all else constant. If you can imagine a graph, with the y-axis being Price, and the x-axis being Quantity, and you were to plot price/quantity data or, perhaps, even a function onto this graph, then that would be a "demand curve". If you did something similar but, this time, the y-axis was Quantity, and the x-axis was Price, then what you would have, instead, is...
