Explain briefly, how a car is able to go round a level curved path?

Expert Answer:

When a car moves round a level curved path, the frictional force between the tyres and the road provides the necessary centripetal force to move in that curved path.

While taking a turn, the tyres of the car tend to leave the road and skid away from the centre of the curve. The force of friction thus acts in the inward direction and provides the needed centripetal force.
