if a cyclist moving with a speed of 4.9m/s on a leval road can take a sharp circular turn of radius 4m , then coefficient of friction between the cycle tyres and road is?

Dear student,

If the cyclist is able to take the turn, the fricitonal force must be large enough to provide the centripetal acceleration.

Hencem\dfrac{v^2}{R}=\mu mg
\implies \mu=\dfrac{v^2}{gR}=0.61
