Small object of mass m is placed on the inner surface of the conical dish which can rotate with angular speed ω.

For μ=0.3 calculate the minumum and the maximum ω such that the object is remains at rest. Solve the problem using the indicated axes x-y.

Do the following steps:

(a) Show all forces acting on the object and and the acceleration

(b) Write Newton’s second law along both axes and solve.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma=m*ω^{2}*r

3. The attempt at a solution

I have plugged in numbers and got answers for ω_{max}and ω_{min}but I dont get the right answer.

I have solved it right when I choose axis the ordinary X-Y axis but I need to know how to solve with using the other axis mentioned in the problem

The right answer is

ω_{max}=7.214 rad/s and ω_{min}=3.405 rad/s
