A coin kept at a distance of 5cm from the centre of a turntable of radius 1.5m just begins to slip when the turntable rotates at a speed of 90 r.p.m. Calculate the coefficient of static friction between the coin and the turntable.
[g = 9.8 m/s2]
Given that r = 5 cm = 0.05 m,
n = 90 r.p.m. = 1.5 Hz
Limiting force of static friction = Centrifugal force
Concept: Centrifugal Forces
