Consider the rectangular cabinet of shown in Figure P12.50, but with a force F S applied horizontally at the upper edge. (a) What is the minimum force required to start to tip the cabinet? (b) What is the minimum coefficient of static friction required for the cabinet not to slide with the application of a force of this magnitude? (c) Find the magnitude and direction of the minimum force required to tip the cabinet if the point of application can be chosen anywhere on the cabinet.

HAWKINS REVIEW #1: INTRO TO CH 1 & 2 CHAPTER 1 – INTRO TO PHYSICS ● Physics is the study of natural phenomena, including LOTS of measurements and equations. It’s math with rules. UNITS IN PHYSICS ● In science, we measure physical quantities. Measurements have __________. We also have lots of _______________. - Units have to be _________________ with one another for equations to “work”. For example: F = m a ( Force = Mass * Acceleration ) [ ] = [ ] [
