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

See attachment. I am only concerned with part b). Part a) is solved.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

See attachment. The solution is quoted to be tan^{-1}(μ_{s}) = θ_{0}, but, as can be seen by my solution, this is impossible based on the derivation. Is this their error, or mine?
