Work Step by Step

We know that the centripetal acceleration is given as $a=\mu g$ We plug in the known values to obtain: $a=(0.71)(9.8)=6.958\frac{m}{s^2}$ The initial speed is given as $v_i^2=v_f^2+2ad$ We plug in the known values to obtain: $v_i^2=(\frac{25}{3.6})^2+2(6.958)(47)=701$ $v_i=26.5\frac{m}{s}$
