Homework Help: Try these probs

  1. Apr 20, 2005 #1
    I have here two problems that I can't even touch. Please someone help me!

    A 36.6 kg round table is supported by three legs placed equal distances apart on the edge. What minimum mass, placed on the table's edge, will cause the table to overturn? Neglect the mass of the legs.

    A cube of side l = 120 cm rests on a rough floor. It is subjected to a steady horizontal pull, F, exerted a distance h = 83.0 cm above the floor. As F is increased, the block will either begin to slide, or begin to tip over. What is the maximum coefficient of static friction for which the block begins to slide rather than tip? Wouldn't I ned to know F to figure this out?
