# Normal Force, Static and Kinetic Frictional Forces For A Cup Of Coffee

Not what you're looking for?

A cup of coffee is setting on a table in a airplane that is flying at a constant altitude and a constant velocity. The coefficient of the static friction between the cup and the table is 0.30. Suddenly, the plane accelerates, its altitude remaining constant. What is the maximum acceleration that the plane can have without the cup sliding backward on the table?

##### Solution Summary

The solution is comprised of a step by step calculation to determine the maximum acceleration, with different forces of friction acting on it.

##### Solution Preview

The maximum acceleration for which the cup will not slide, will be such that the pseudo force due to acceleration ...
