Problem 6DQ

You are balancing a wrench by suspending it at a single point. Is the equilibrium stable, unstable, or neutral if the point is above, at, or below the wrench’s center of gravity? In each case give the reasoning behind your answer. (For rotation, a rigid body is in ?stable equilibrium if a small rotation of the body produces a torque that tends to return the body to equilibrium; it is in ?unstable equilibrium if a small rotation produces a torque that tends to take the body farther from equilibrium; and it is in ?neutral? equilibrium if a small rotation produces no torque.)
