Homework Help: Question I can't solve

  1. Nov 27, 2007 #1
    I can't solve this problem, can anyone help?

    The problem I'm stuck on is:

    You're trying to tip over a box. What is the amount of force you'd need to apply to it?

    The box is 2.7 meters tall, .83 wide and weighs 27kg.

    Anyone got an answer...?

    You need to make an attempt to solve the problem before anyone will help you ...

    And this question belongs in "introductory physics".

    you can do by torqe balance about the tip point.
