A cubical block vibrates horizontally, in Simple Harmonic motion (SHM) with an amplitude of 8.0 cm and a frequency of 1.5 Hz. If a smaller block sitting on it is not to slide, what is the minimum value that the coefficient of static friction between the two blocks can be.

In Coulomb Damping, the frictional force each of the object's experience are opposite each other and equal. The Coefficient of static friction of the smaller object x the Normal Force (smaller object's weight) = the Frictional Force.
Find the equation that relates Force, Amplitude and Frequency of the larger object and solve for the Coeff. of Static Friction.
