1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A stick of length L and mass m is falling on a table with kinetic friction uK and static friction uS. Find the equation that determines whether the rod will stick or slip. If m = 10kg and L = 100cm, uS = 0.8, uK = 0.7 and initial theta = 30 degrees find the initial accel for stick and slip. 2. Relevant equations Irod = (1/3)mL^2 M= r x F 3. The attempt at a solution I'm so stuck. I made an FBD but as far as I can see, there are no forces in the X-direction, so what exactly makes the thing slip?
