    So I've been trying to answer this question but the wording confuses me.
    A fully worked solution would be appreciated .

    The Question:

    A uniform rod, of mass M, rests in limiting equilibrium with the end A
    standing on rough horizontal ground and the end B resting against a smooth vertical wall. The vertical plane containing AB is perpendicular to the wall. The coefficient of friction between the rod and the ground is 0.2.

    Find, to the nearest degree, the angle at which the rod is inclined to the vertical.

    Can't do a full solution but can help you get there. Have you drawn a diagram and labelled all the forces?

    Please post maths question in the maths forum in future so they don't get missed. I moved/bumped your thread for you.

    Seems I won't need help anymore, thanks for the offer.
    I actually found out the solution and my teacher said that the class will go over the questions (including this one)
