1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=d277r7r_62gj8gsqcw 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I think that A will hit the side of the table before B reaches the edge because B will accelerate downward through a distance L/2 at a rate of g/2, which is the same speed that A will go sideways. B will accelerate sideways at a smaller rate, and since it would have to travel through a distance of L/2 at the same rate, or faster than, g/2 to hit the side before A fell over, thus A will fall over the side of the table before B hits the side. Is that right?
