1.0kg block is sitting on a horizontal incline plane. The plane is tilted into the block begins to slide. You notice that the plane is inclined at an angle of 32 degrees above the horizontal when the block begins to slide. Calculate the coefficient of static friction that acts between the block and the plane.
I tried solving this by doing FgSinθ=μCosθ and manipulating it into Sinθ/Cosθ=μ which is Tanθ=μ. This comes out to Tan(32)=0.62
My Question for You
But my question is that it's already moving at 32 degrees, so am I finding the coefficient of KINETIC friction the way I did it. If so then how do I find the coefficient of STATIC friction given the information I have.
