1.3.4 Worked example 1.2

Course subject(s) Module 1: Mechanics

A book is on a table and you need to calculate under which angle the book will start to move if you tilt the table. θ is the angle between the table and the horizontal plane. The friction coefficient between the book and the table is μs. Give an expression for θmax, the angle at which the book will start to move. Remember sin/cos=tan.
