If the coefficient of static friction between a table and a uniform, massive rope is µs, what fraction of the rope can hang over the edge of the table without the rope sliding?
Step 1 of 3
Solution 84P Let the fraction of the rope that hangs over the edge is x. Weight of this fraction, W = xmg …..(1) The other fraction (1 x) is on the table. The force of friction on this fraction is F = (1 s)mg …..(2) Now, for the rope to hang over the...
