1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If the coefficient of friction between an insect and bowl surface is u (mu) and the radius of bowl is r, what is the max height upto which the insect can crawl in the bowl? a) r/root(1 + u2) b) r [ 1 - 1/root(1 + u2)] c) r [root(1 + u2)] d)r [ root(1 + u2) -1 ] Correct Answer: b 2. Relevant equations F=uR tan theta = u On a non-horizontal plane, F=mg sin theta R=mg cos theta therefore, net f=mg(sin theta + u cos theta) 3. The attempt at a solution Can't get the gist of how to approach this question.
