1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform brick of length L is laid on a smooth horizontal surface. Other equal bricks are now piled on as shown, so that the sides form a continuous plane, but the ends are oﬀset at each block from the previous brick by a distance 0.15L. How many bricks can be stacked in this manner before the pile topples over? 2. Relevant equations centre of mass = (m1x1 + m2x2) / (m1 + m2) 3. The attempt at a solution i did the solution and got total number of blocks when toppling occurs is 7 is it correct i did it stating that toppling occurs when center of mass is at least l/2 away from the center is it correct? one more the question states smooth floor is it important?
