I am trying to solve a problem where we have to find the maximum angle before a cube starts sliding when said cube is placed inside a spinning hollow cylinder (the cylinder is placed horizontally). The radius of the cylinder is 0.4 m, the coefficient of static friction between the cube and the cylinder is 0.75 and the period of the spinning cylinder is 2 revolutions/second. I tried to solve the problem but I end up with a transcendental equation that can't seem to be solved:

μω

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

μω

^{2}R = μgsin(θ) - gcos(θ).Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
