Rather than rotate completely horizontally, a carousel rotates at an angle of 10° from horizontal, with a constant angular velocity of 1.571 RAD/s. A box is placed 1.5 m from the axis of rotation. What’s the minimum coefficient of static friction so the box will not slip?

    acceleration down slope = w^2 R cos 10
    so m a = m w^2 R cos 10

    Force down slope = m g sin 10 + mu m g cos 10

    so
    g sin 10 + mu g cos 10 = w^2 R cos 10

    g tan 10 + mu g = w^2 R

    mu = ( w^2 r/g -tan 10)

    = 0.201
