Homework Help: Quick Pulley Question

  1. Oct 26, 2008 #1
    How do I find the coefficient of kinetic friction for a pulley?
    If a mass of 0.019 kg overcomes the friction in a pulley, is this mue?
    Normal force would be 0.20 kg * 9.8?

    But it can't be mue, because I am asked to find mue in the question.
