I take it the angle of the steering wheel in a car is roughly proportional to the curvature, and therefore inversely proportional to the turning radius.
When I am driving slowly and want to turn the car, I have to turn the steering wheel at a very large angle to get it to turn in a reasonable amount of time, sometimes turning the wheel to the ends of travel to get it to keep to a small turning radius.
If I am driving fast, I barely have to turn the wheel at all to get the car to turn. Which makes sense, because the turning radius is much larger.
So here's my question: what happens if I were to drive down the highway at 65MPH and turn the steering wheel as hard as I could?
- would the steering wheel reach the end of travel at a smaller angle?
- would the steering wheel be too hard to move + thus prevent me from doing something stupid?
- would the car flip over?
- would the car go into a skid?
For obvious reasons, I don't want to try this myself.
