Hello all,

I'm trying to calculate how much force is required to topple over a frame with a conveyor attached to it. I have attached a screenshot of the assembly.

I have the centre of gravity as seen on the screenshot. The two lines to the pivot points show the angle. These are 16 degrees (line length of 1032mm) and 12.5 degrees (line length of 1015mm).

The total mass of the unit is 175kg.

I have seen a couple of methods online such as using kinetic and potential energy or trying to calculate the torque required to push the CoG over the pivot.

I'm struggling with this seemingly simple task! Any input would be appreciated, if anymore information is required let me know.

Thanks,
