One-fourth length of a uniform rod of mass m and length l is placed on a rough horizontal surface and it is held stationary in horizontal position by means of a light thread. The thread is then burnt and the rod starts rotating about the edge. Find the angle between the rod and the horizontal when it is about to slide on the edge. The coefficient of friction between the rod and the surface is .
