Problem 11Q

Which configuration of bricks, Fig. 9-39a or Fig. 9-39b, is the more likely to be stable? Why?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Answer:

In figure (a),  The center of gravity of the two bricks stays on the right side of the corner of the table so the bricks fall.

In figure (b), The center of gravity of the two bricks stays just on the corner of the table. So the bricks are more stable.
