1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A small package is placed on the platform of a non-rotating merry-go-round, 2.72 m from the vertical rotation axis. At t=0, the merry go round begins rotating with a constant angular acceleration of α = 0.100 rad/s^2. The coefficient of static friction is 0.600. Determine the time t at which the package first begins to slide. 2. Relevant equations ω = ωinital + αt 3. The attempt at a solution My thinking of it was that the package would begin to slide after the max of its static friction is reached (μN), but was having trouble applying that and also expressing my answer in terms of time that has passed.
