A 0.090 kg remote control 24.2 cm long rests on a table, as shown in the figure below, with a length L overhanging its edge. To operate the power button on this remote requires a force of 0.460 N. How far can the remote control extend beyond the edge of the table and still not tip over when you press the power button? Assume the mass of the remote is distributed uniformly, and that the power button is on the end of the remote overhanging the table.
The Attempt at a Solution
I made the FBD, but I can't figure out how to implement the Normal force into my torque equation. It screws with my results!
