Hi! I'm studying for an exam on Friday, and I'm stuck on this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A uniform chain of length 8.00m initially lies stretched out on a horizontal table.

A. Assuming the coefficient of static friction between chain and table is 0.600, show that the chain will begin to slide off the table if at least 3.00m of it hangs over the edge of the table.

B. Determine the speed of the chain as its last link leaves the table, given that the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chain and the table is 0.400

Possible Equations to use?

m=z(y), y=dm/dx

dm/dt=dz/dt(y)

Any help would be appreciated!!!
