Homework Help: Find minimum value for coefficient of static friction

  1. Sep 24, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    Newton's 2nd Law

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I was wondering if anyone could verify that I have all the correct vectors or if I am missing any. I just wanted to check before I started trying to derive the equations.

    The directions of FT1 and FT2 do not appear to be correct in the first and third diagrams. Are the x-axes in those two diagrams parallel to the inclines?
