1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two identical blocks are tied together with a string and placed along the same radius of a turntable that is spinning about its center. The inner block is 4 cm from the center and the outer block is 5 cm from the center. The coefficient of static friction between the turntable and the blocks is µs = 0.71, and the string is taut. What is the maximum angular frequency such that neither block slides? 2. Relevant equations a_c = (V^2)/R w = 2pi/T a_c = (w^2)R F = ma 3. The attempt at a solution Sum of force on inner block (known to be zero0 0 = µmg - T + m(w^2)R1 Sum of force on outer block (also zero) 0 = µmg + T + m(w^2)R2 I then took the two tensions to be equal, solved for one, then substituted in the other an solved for w, the angular frequency. -T = µmg + m(w^2)R2 inserted 0 = µmg +(µmg + m(w^2)R2) + m(w^2)R1 masses cancel 0 = 2µg + (w^2)(R2+R1) w = 1.24 Where did I go wrong?
