Well I tried that, but then I got stuck...
The F's cancel out.
Move the sinθ to the other side, so you get
Cosθ/Sinθ = 0.3
then I got stuck, I was thinking perhaps you could use trigonometric proofs?
Thanks, so if
Fcosθ = Friction
And if friction = the coefficient of friction x the reaction force,
and the reaction force (R) = Fsinθ
would it be...
Fcosθ = 0.3 x Fsinθ?
Thanks, I remember now,
so the horizontal component is Fcosθ
the vertical component would be Fsinθ
i still don't see how that will help, as you don't actually have F or θ
Homework Statement
A mop is being used to clean a floor. The coefficient of friction between the mop and floor is 0.3. Find the angle between the handle and the horizontal when the mop head is moving at constant velocity.
