Review exercise 2, question 42. Too long to type and quite complicated to explain.

Anyway, only part i'm stuck on is 42)c
I have found the max value 1/3 but I can't seem to find minimum value 1/7
Could anyone help me out?

Thanks.

At the minimum value of (mu), A just reaches P
so in v^2=u^2 +2aS S=h
once B has landed, acceleration T=F=(mu)3mg=3ma so a =(-)g(mu)
so at P v^2=u^2 +2ah
gives 0 = 0.5gh(1-3(mu))-2hg(mu) [u^2 from part (b)]
gives eventually 0 = 1-7(mu)
so at limit (mu) = 1/7
