This problem solves for the minimal radius of curvature for designing and building a banked curve on a road assuming a constant speed and elevation.

It is written using the modern mechanics introductory physics approach of Chabay and Sherwood and demonstrates the pedagogical value of Maple's ability to teach physics and to solve problems starting from fundamental principles, i.e., a top-down approach. This is in contrast to most computational systems where one codes starting from a specific example before implementing the fundamental principles.
