A tick is standing on a turntable at distance r from the centre. The static friction coefficient between the tick and table is us. The table is spinning at a constant angular frequency of w

a) what values of r is the bug most likely to slip at? small or large ?
b) The tick is walking along a radius and slips. What is the value of r when the tick slips?

  1. omega = constant angular velocity

    v = omega r
    Ac = omega^2 r

    slips when mu m g = m omega^2 r
    or mu g = omega^2 r
    so
    the bigger r, the more likely the slip

    r = mu g/omega^2
