Calculate the depth h of mud for which the 3m concrete retaining wall is on the verge of tipping about its forward edge A. The density of mud may be taken to be 1760 kg/m^{3}and that of concrete to be 2400 kg/m^{3}

3. The attempt at a solution

So I made A actually at 1.5m down from the top of the concrete wall. I figured Rb=R from the mud because of Sum of Fx. Then I just considered the weight of the wall as well.

I assumed for a 1m wide slab.
