General GM ChatChat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Today in class we were going through problems. The professor has a power point presentation with all the problems on it. At one point he accidentally skipped ahead by a slide and i saw a picture of a Bonneville come up and disappear as he moved back. And I'm like, *gasp* was that a bonne? The I turned the page in my book and saw it. lol

The problem involved figuring out what degree of an embankment is required for a car going 30 mph in a turn to cancel out friction of sliding off...And in transcribing the problem to paper I spent extra time drawing the 'Free Body Diagram' as my Bonnie, lol. The guy next to me now believes I am nuts

I took pictures, cause I was bored a few minutes ago:

The Answer is Boxed:

[edit] After Posting I guess this would have been better off in the lounge, Move if necessary, sorry if it is.

Outstanding, now for extra credit, go roll your Bonneville onto an appropriate incline and offer up the photos to the prof as proof of the equations (or ask him why it didn't work out in real life like the book suggested)

(I'm kidding of course...you can't drop friction in real life...nice drawing though )
