Hi,

How can I calculate the horizontal force that is needed to hold some specific load? An example: What is the force that I need to exert with my fingers horizontally to hold a 1Kg load, this assuming that my arm/hand is rigid and stable.
I assume that the force will be a function of the finger surface in touch with the load and also some kind of slippery factor of the finger (not sure if this is the right term).

Thanks/Happy new year Jj
