## Homework Statement

The tube weighs 100[kg], is 1.2[m] high with radius 0.4[m] and is on a rough surface. a force is applied at the top. the first question was what's the magnitude to turn over the tube, but the second was what's the minimal force needed to do that.

## Homework Equations

Moment: M=FxR

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't understand the second question since it's already in the best position and direction for that.

The answer in the book for the minimal force is 272[N]
