(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The drawing shows a baggage carousel at an airport. Your suitcase has not slid all the way down the slope and is going around at a constant speed on a circle (r = 12.8 m) as the carousel turns. The coefficient of static friction between the suitcase and the carousel is 0.760, and the angle in the drawing is 32.6°. How much time is required for your suitcase to go around once?

2. Relevant equations

v=sqrt(R*g*tan(theta))

2*pi*r

v=sqrt(r*friction*9.8)

3. The attempt at a solution

2*pi*12.8=80.424 meters

v=sqrt(125.44*tan(32.6)

v=sqrt(80.222)= 8.95 m/s

v=sqrt(8.95*.760*9.8)

this is incorrect, i know it has something to do with the frictional force but im not sure where it goes into play
