Question: A small 200-g collar C can slide on a semicircular rod that is made to rotate about the vertical AB at the constant rate of 6 rad/s. Determine the minimum required value of the coefficient of static friction between the collar and the rod if the collar is not to slide when ( a ) θ = 90 ° , ( b ) θ = 75 ° , ( c ) θ = 45 ° . Indicate in each case the direction of the impending motion. Fig. P12.128 Answer : Given Mass of the collar C ,

Therefore, the minimum required value of the coefficient of static friction is and the direction of the impending motion is downward. b) For an arbitrary value of , the direction is not known. To consider both possibilities for each value of , let corresponds to impending motion downward and correspond to impending motion upward. Now, consider the downward impending motion. Take the condition .
