Why are objects with higher center of mass less stable?
Is it because less force (from, say, potential objects that could tip the object) is required to exert the same amount of torque on objects with higher center of mass?

An object falls over when the centre of mass moves outside the base.
Consider what angle you have to tilt a shape through to get to this state.
