1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A rope is wrapped through an angle θ about a horizontal pole (So for ex- ample, θ = 2π would imply the rope goes around one full time). The rope and the pole have a static friction coeffecient of μ, and the pole is of radius r. From one end of the rope hangs a mass m. How much force must be exerted on the other end of the rope to keep the mass from falling? 2. Relevant equations F=ma Fc=mv^2/r 3. The attempt at a solution So I attempted to draw out FBDs for each section and I got that the string on the left side has a Fpull in the downward direciton, a tension force pulling upward and a friction force upward. On the mass, I have mg pulling down, tension and Fpull in the upward direction. I have the diagram uploaded.
