How do you use the angle of uniform slip to calculate the coefficient of static friction?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there an equation for this? I cannot find it in the module on friction provided with the course.... thanks!

I found somewhere that tanθ=μk, but that doesn't really help me, as i am looking for μs! thanks :)

PS sorry if this is a really stupid question by the way...
