A small metal cylinder of mass m=0.20 kg sits on a rotating turntable. The coefficient of static friction between the metal cylinder and the turntable is u_{s}=.800. The cylinder is located 0.15m from the center of the turntable. Find the maximum speed that the cylinder can have without skidding.

2. Relevant equations

Not sure what equations will be needed

3. The attempt at a solution

Have no idea how to find the solution! This is on a practice test that I am working on for an upcoming physics test, but I have never seen a problem like this before. I would really appreciate a good explanation as to how to do this problem so that I will understand how to do it for the test! Thank you for all of your help!

PS: The answer to this problem is 1.1 m/s. I just need to understand how to get to this answer.
