1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform pole of mass is at rest on an incline of angle , secured by a horizontal rope as shown in the figure. http://session.masteringphysics.com/problemAsset/1034182/4/RW-12-57.jpg For what angle does the situation require the greatest coefficient of friction? 2. Relevant equations Sum of all forces, x and y, as well as torque equaling to zero. 3. The attempt at a solution I got that the friction force would be static acting upward on the ramp, being Fs=musmgsin. and the angle would be the same as the theta in the picture. any ideas on how to start?
