The homogenous semicylinder has a mass of 20 kg and mass center at G. If force P is applied at the edge, and r = 300 mm, determine the angle u at which the semicylinder is on the verge of slipping. The coefficient of static friction between the plane and the cylinder is ms = 0.3. Also, what is the corresponding force P for this case?

PY 205 Week 5 Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation - The force of gravitation exerted on one particle by a second particle is always directed toward the second particle o The total force on one particle is the vector sum of the forces exerted by each of the others - Gravity near the earth’s surface o The force of gravity due to...
