Toppling effect

  1. Mar 25, 2015 #1
    Hello, I uploaded an image of the question so it becomes clear
    my main doubt is which procedure should I follow
    1) total object weight*PERP. Distance to toppling point=Moment of cylinder+moment of cone
    2) moment of cylinder ≥ moment of cone
    I tried doing method two since they asked for least value and not exact

    What do you mean by "distance to toppling point"? Distance from what to what?
