1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Figure P8.74 shows a vertical force applied tangentially to a uniform cylinder of weight w. The coefficient of static friction between the cylinder and all surfaces is 0.500. Find, in terms of w, the maximum force F that can be applied without causing the cylinder to rotate. [Hint: When the cylinder is on the verge of slipping, both friction forces are at their maximum values. Why?] 2. Relevant equations Torque = F * d F = Mg Friction = coefficient * normal force 3. The attempt at a solution There are a few force: weight force, F, <right wall>: normal force to the left, friction force, <lower wall>: friction force to the right, normal force upward. However, I don't know how to combine these forces to solve the problem.
