# To mop-clean a floor, a cleaning machine presses a circular mop of radius R vertically down with a total force F and rotates it with a constant angular speed about its axis. If the force F is disturbed uniformly over the mop and if coefficient of friction between the mop and the floor is the torque applied by the machine on the mop is : (a) FR (b) FR/3 (c) FR/2 (d) FR/6
