I am trying to calculate how fast you could rotate a pool table (at constant angular velocity) without the balls moving.

Assumptions used: coeffecient of static friction=0.3

table dimensions: 50in.X100in.

So the farthest distance from the center is 111.8 in.

I came up with about 9.7 rpm by setting radial acceleratio=R*omega=coeff. friction*g

Can anyone check me on this, not sure if I did it right. Thanks!
