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

Carousel is spinning when w = 1.4rad / s.

on the carousel there is a given body.

Static friction between the carousel with the body is 0.2

What is the radius that you can put the body on the carousel that the body won't slip?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i've tried to solve it by calculating maximum friction without that body moves while accelerating is 0.

forces on the body is (f=ma=0) 2mwv-0.2*mg, which leads to w=1/v

v=w*r means that r=v^2=1/(1.4)^2

but this answer is wrong. can someone help and tell me what i'm missing?
