## Homework Statement

A uniform rectangular block of length 37.0 cm is placed so that its centre of mass is a distance of 1.50 cm away from the edge of the table. Since its centre of mass is still over the table (i.e. not sticking out past the edge), the block is stable. An identical block is placed on top of that block. How far from the edge of the table can the centre of mass of the top block be before the blocks become unstable? Take the edge of the table to be the origin of your coordinate system, with negative values representing positions that are over the table, and positive values representing positions that are past the edge.

## The Attempt at a Solution

so i know the answer is 1.5cm.

Does it mean no matter how many blocks i put on top, the center of mass is still at 1.50cm?
