**Q.**

A road is banked such that a vehicle can go in the middle of it with a constant velocity of 40 m/s. What will happen if the velocity is decreased and why?

Imagine friction is not present

The vehicle slide up as Normal by ground will increase

The vehicle will slide down as Normal by ground will decrease.

The vehicle will slide down as centripetal force mv

^{2}/R has to be constantNone of these
