# Cornering Force Calculator

Cornering Force (or Side Force) is the lateral force produced by an object when turning, typically associated with the turning of a motor vehicle. Cornering Force is most commonly associated with motor sports including Formula 1 Racing and motorbike racing. Understnading the Cornering force allows us to calculate the maximum speed acheiveable for a vehicle transiting a corner of bend using quantified metrics including the radius and slope of the surface when considering the mass and velocity of the vehicle in motion.
