WOULD SOME1 HELP ME WITH THIS ANNOYING PROBLEM I CANT SOLVE :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a cat is wrapped around a fixed cylinder .theres friction between the rope and da cylinder with a coefficient of friction (mu) , the angle covered by the rope on the cylinder is (pi)/3 .assume a really thin rope. A cat is pulling on one end of the rope with a force F while 10 mice can just barely prevent from sliding by applying a total force of f . Find (mu) in function of F, f and the angle

i know the answer is has to do with an exponential

thanks

Manuel
