    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A 5.10 coin is placed 16.0 from the center of a turntable. The coin has static and kinetic coefficients of friction with the turntable surface of = 0.810 and = 0.510.

    What is the maximum angular velocity with which the turntable can spin without the coin sliding?

    2. Relevant equations
