A series of small packages are being moved by a thin conveyor belt that passes over a 300-mm radius idler pulley. The belt starts from rest at time t=0 and its speed increases at a constant rate of 150mm/s^2. Knowing that the coefficient of static friction between the packages and the belt is 0.75, determine the time at which the first package slips.
