Consider a pulley as shown. A string is placed on the pulley. The string is massless and the pulley has friction. Consider the two tensions T1 and T2, T1>T2
The coefficient of friction is k.
Find the ratio T1/T2 when the string is just about to slip over the pulley.
- k = 1/pi
- Theta = pi (rad)
- pi = 3.14159265
- e = 2.71
