I need help with understanding number 18.
Center of mase formula: m1x1+m2x2/(all masses)
The Attempt at a Solution
How do you tell if adding the weight will make the truck tipover.
I calculated that the center of mass would shift to 1.75m from where the load was added. Or .25 m from the axle. (axle 1)+(axle 2)/(the whole mass of the system)
2000*4.5+8000*1.5/12000=1.75m from where the new load was added.
