JBriggs444: I just wanted to let you know that I've already gone through all this stuff with UMath1 in posts #47 and #55. Please check it out to save yourself some effort.

I'm not sure what your last line represents, since it is not an equation.UMath1 said:Ok so did thatView attachment 87477
You could do worse than what I suggested in post #107. (107!)UMath1 said:The last line is a simplification of the middle line. Jbriggs444 was trying to help me eliminate "a" by using alpa=a/r. But I am not sure how to progress.

Perhaps English is not your first language?UMath1 said:Worse?
It would be much friendlier if you could transcribe that equation.UMath1 said:So I did try that.
But now I have staticfriction on both sides of the equation.
Huh? Try subtracting ##k F_{sf}## from both sides to start.UMath1 said:Would I need to integrate both sides?
That is correct -- or would be if we fix up the notation slightly. When written on one line in text form, the conventional interpretation of what you have written would be to divide c by 1 and then subtract k. i.e.UMath1 said:F_{SF}=c/1-k
