The "cornering performance" of an automobile is evaluated on a skid pad, where the maximum speed that a car can maintain around a circular path on a dry, flat surface is measured. Then the centripetal acceleration, also called the lateral acceleration, is calculated as a multiple of the free-fall acceleration g. The main factors affecting the performance of the car are its tire characteristics and the suspension system. A certain car can negotiate a skidpad of radius 62.2 m at 86.0 km/h. Calculate its maximum lateral acceleration.
