A box is on a rotating disk, and is located a distance of n1
meters from the center. The coefficient of static friction between
the box and the disk is &mu = 1/n2. What is the shortest
time of rotation (Period) that the disk can have such that the box does
not slide off the disk? If the shortest period T = 2 &pi n3
seconds, what is n3? For this problem, g = 10 m/s2.
Note that n1 has units of meters, and n3 has units of
seconds. n2 is unitless.
