  1. v = 90000 m / 3600 s = 25 m/s

    centripetal force necessary = 1200 * 25^2 / 70 = 10.7 kN

    vertical force = m g = 1200 * 9.81 = 11.8 kN

    normal force = m g cos(12º) = 11.5 kN
    ... horizontal component = 11.5 * sin(12º) = 2390 N

    necessary horizontal friction force = 10.7 kN - 2.4 kN = 8.3 kN
