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 pacakges and the belt is 0.75, determine the time at which the first package slips.

Thanks in advance.

    I should add, the answer is given as 11.32s, I just don't know how to get there. Thanks again.

    I am sorry, the acceleration is constant and given. The force required between package and belt is therefore constant (m a) which is m g * coef. As the problem is stated, there is no particular time.
    m a = . 75 m g
    a = .75 (9.8)
    a = 7.35 m/s^2 = 7350 mm/s^2 before it slips

    The acceleration increases at a constant rate, it does not remain constant. Thanks for replying, though. I'm still having trouble with it.

    Err, I typed that wrong. The acceleration is in fact constant. The velocity on the other hand is increasing at a constant rate so at some point the velocity will be greater than the friction force can hold. I just can't put it all together.
