Homework Help: physics! (69)

Posted by Tiffany on Monday, February 7, 2011 at 11:07am.

A damp washcloth is hung over the edge of a table to dry. Thus, part (mass = mon) of the washcloth rests on the table and part (mass = moff) does not. The coefficient of static friction between the table and the washcloth is 0.395. Determine the maximum fraction [moff/mtotal] that can hang over the edge without causing the whole washcloth to slide off the table.
