A bead B of mass 0.9 kg is threaded on a light inextensible string of length 70 cm. The string is fixed at one end A with the other end attached to a ring R of mass 0.5 kg, threaded on a fixed rough horizontal rod. The system is in limiting equilibrium when R is 50 cm from A.
The coefficient of friction between the ring and the rod is 0.3.
find the tension in the strin given that the ring is about to slip

Actually the answer is T=2.98. can you explain how you got whatever answer you got??

Sorry, but i think i was lucky to get that answer.

What i did was work out the angle ARB using the cosine rule, and then considered only the ring R

I can't seem to draw the forces (reaction at pulley, friction) correctly. I have found cosÎ± to be 5/7 but can't find the answer as my Î£F=0 equations are wrong. Can you guys explain please? Thanks

The information as supplied by the OP, doesn't seem consistent.

Do you have a link to the actual question, or a scan/photo?

Failing that, can you provide the question, exactly as worded.
