let  a force F is applied at a distance r from the center ...

friction force will be in foreward direction

for translational motion

 F - f =ma ..........1

for rotational motion

Fr  - fR = I(alfa) ..........2                               (R is radius of sphere)

for no slipping a = (alfa)R & Isphere = 2mR2/5

Fr - fR = 2maR/5 .................3

from 1 & 3

f = F(5r - 2R)/3R ......4

for rolling ,

 f < or = umg

F(5r-2R)/3R = umg          

F= 3umgR/(5r-2R)

this value of force is maximum .......
