F=mA

This is newton's first law: The force of an object is equal to the

mass of that object times the acceleration.

One formula is: centripetal force = speed2 / radius. Solve it
for speed, then convert that to revolutions per second.

### How do you find the minimum coefficient of static friction for a mass on an incline of 32 degrees?

The equation for friction is F=uN.
F (friction), u (coefficient of friction), and N (normal).
So you first need to solve for the normal by using Newton's
second law. Also solve for the x component of the gravity force.
Since it is static friction, you know it should be at rest, so that
x component force should be the same as the force of friction.
Knowing that and the normal, plug it into the equation and solve
for u.
