Problem: Ellipse at rest
What is the minimum eccentricity of an ellipse that can rest on an inclined plane of angle α with the area vector being perpendicular to both the line of greatest slope and the vertical? There is uniform gravitational field downwards. The coefficient of static friction can be assumed to be practically infinite.
