Homework Help: Rotational Dynamics

  1. Nov 5, 2006 #1
    A Right Circular uniform Solid cone of mass m and semi vertical angle a(alpha) is placed over a rough horizontal surface. Assuming friction to be sufficient to prevent slipping, find the minimum force that can be applied at the tip of the cone such that it just topples.
