Question # 6 (6 points)

The uniform bar AB of mass kg m 30 = is leaning
against the vertical wall as shown. The contact
surface at B is smooth (no friction), whereas the
coefficient of static friction between the bar and the
wall at A is 2 . 0 =
S
. Calculate the minimum
force P required to prevent the bar from slipping.

Note: To solve the question plot the free body
diagram of the bar.
