4. (TCO 4) Ramon and Sally are observing a toy car speed up as it goes around a circular track. Ramon
says, “The car is speeding up, so there must be a net force parallel to the track.” “I don’t think so,” replies
Sally. “It’s moving in a circle and that requires a centripetal acceleration. The net force has to point
towards the center of the circle.” Do you agree with Ramon, Sally, or neither? Explain in complete
sentences.

does the required force of static friction between your tires compare if you make the turn at 30 mph vs. 60
