Set Up:Apply to the roller, with counterclockwise torque positive and the axis at the point ofcontact between the roller and the brick. When the roller is on the verge of rolling over the brick, the normal force onit from the ground becomes zero.Solve: (a)The free-body diagram for the roller is given in Figure 10.61a. and are the componets of the forceexerted by the brick.
