The movable bracket shown may be placed at any height on the 50-mm-diameter pipe. If the coefficient of static friction between the pipe and bracket is 0.30, determine the minimum distance x at which the load P can be supported. Assume that the bracket is weightless.
Sum of Forces and Moments = 0 for equilibrium
F_f = uN
The Attempt at a Solution
I got stuck after getting the equilibrium equations. Too many variables and not enough equations.
