A single carriageway road changes direction by 25º by means of a circular curve without transitions. The distance from the intersection point to the start of the circular curve is 170m, and the superelevation on the circular curve is 2.5%. Calculate the value of μ for a vehicle travelling at 80 km/h at the middle of the curve.

Basically what needs to be found here is R the radius as it then goes into the formula v2/127R = e + μ. Obviously its just attaining R thats tricky

Thanks a lot in advance
