    shouldn't it be:
    v=( meu*R*g)^(1/2)
    so then when rearranged,
    meu= v^2/Rg
    but that isn't the answer.

    μ is mu.

    F = μR

    F = (mv^2)/r = μR --> μ = (mv^2)/(rR)

    R = mg, so μ = (mv^2)/(rmg) = (v^2)/(rg) = answer (1).

    Edit: I used r as radius and R as the reaction force. We need more letters.

    Oh, okay thanks. Then the book's answer is probably wrong.
