**engmath**, Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at 12:15amα=a/r

the time it takes to travel π/2 radians is

related by

π/2=.5*a*t^2/r

solve for t

t=sqrt(π*r/a)

ω=α*t

Plug in t and a/r

ω=sqrt(a*π/r)

The force is m*ω^2*r

F=m*a*π

friction is

m*g*µs

then

m*g*µs=m*a*π

so basically....

µs=a*π/g

=1.70pi/9.8= 0.54497 ====> sig figs 0.545
