Homework Help: Physics- PLEASE HELP

Posted by Shannon on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 6:04pm.

A luggage carousel at an airport has the form of a section of a large cone, steadily rotating about its vertical axis. Its metallic surface slopes downward toward the outside, making an angle of 21.0 with the horizontal. A 37.0 kg piece of luggage is placed on the carousel, 7.10 m from the axis of rotation. The travel bag goes around once in 44.0 s. (a) Calculate the force of static friction between the bag and the carousel. b) (b) The drive motor is shifted to turn the carousel at a higher constant rate of rotation, and the piece of luggage is bumped to a position 7.88 m from the axis of rotation. The bag is on the verge of slipping as it goes around once every 28.20 s. Calculate the coefficient of static friction between the bag and the carousel.
