## Homework Statement

Not an actual homework problem but a discussion that came up in class while we were learning about torque.

A tall box is sliding across a surface with friction f, mass m, and velocity v. What equations would you use to figure out if the box would tip over while sliding to a stop.

## Homework Equations

T = Fd

f = (mu) N

?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I originally was thinking that you could solve this with just torque and force equations but now I'm thinking you would have to use rotational inertia or maybe angular velocity equations. I'm just not sure where to start with it.[/B]
