The figure shows a bicycle wheel resting against a small step whose height is h = 0.110 m. The weight and radius of the wheel are W = 29.0 N and r = 0.350 m. A horizontal force F is applied to the axle of the wheel. As the magnitude of F increases, there comes a time when the wheel just begins to rise up and loses contact with the ground. What is the magnitude of the force when this happens?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I drew a diagram, yet i'm not even sure how to start this problem... help please! thanks!
