A cylinder of mass M and radius R is resting on a horizontal platform (which is parallel to the x-y
plane) with its axis fixed along the y axis and free to rotate about its axis . The platform is given a
motion in the x-direction given by x = A cos($\omega$t). There is no slipping between the cylinder and
platform. Find the maximum torque acting on the cylinder during its motion.
In the above question , I could not imagine what the question is asking .
