coefficient of friction= tan theta/3 this formula can be used to calculate the angle theta for rolling of a cylinder over an inclined plane without slipping. is that angle the max. angle with the horizontal plane beyond which the the cylinder will start skidding?

Expert Answer:

For a fixed value of coefficient of friction this angle theta is the maximum angle of the inclined plane after which the cylinder will start skidding.
