Homework Help: Max Static Friction

  1. Feb 6, 2008 #1
    [SOLVED] !!Max Static Friction !!

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Its #8-5 and it goes with the diagram below. I Can't seem to get the equations to work out. I know I need three in three unknowns, which I thought I found, but one causes this to fail. Can anyone see my error? I have done this twice so far (different mistakes). I am just wondering if I am missing the obvious.
