# A solid cylinder with m and mass kg is placed such that it is in contact with the vertical and a horizontal surface as shown in Figure. The coefficient of static friction is 1/3) for both the surfaces. Find the distance (in CM) from the centre of the cylinder at which a force should be applied vertically so that the cylinder just starts rotating in anticlockwise direction ## Question ID - 101422 :- A solid cylinder with m and mass kg is placed such that it is in contact with the vertical and a horizontal surface as shown in Figure.

(6)

For equilibrium of the cylinder in the horizontal direction (i) In the vertical direction, (ii)

Solving these two equation with N, kg and =1/3, we get and Now,    m
