Kim is driving down the road in her Camaro Z28 when David pulls up next to her in his Honda Civic and challenges her to a burn out competition. Kim knows you are taking biomechanics and asks if she should accept the challenge. Kim gives you the following numbers.Honda Civic: 188 Nm torque, 2886 lb, 24 inch tire diameter, 60 percent of weight over drive tires. Camaro Z28: 441 Nm torque, 3450 lb, 25 inch tire diameter, 40 percent of weight over drive tires. Kim also notes that Davit put Formula racing tires on his Honda to increase his stree cred while she has hi performance stree tires. Kim explains that a car's torque rating is equivalent to a moment applied at the center of the wheel. The frictional force between the tire and the road produces a moment that opposes the car's torque. If the torque is greater than the frictional force, the car's tires will spin in place. Using the diagram, calculate the moment produced by the frictional force for each car. Should Kim accept the challenge?
