Balancing pencil on its tip

  1. May 7, 2015 #1
    How do you balance a pencil on its tip? If it occurs in a vacuum container that is suspended in a superconducting magnet making sure vibrations from surrounding wouldnt move the surface, can the pencil be balanced on its tip? What would it take to balance it?
