Homework Help: physics

Posted by Evelyn on Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 9:51pm.

One of the curators at the art museum is tilting a large cylinder backward. At what angle (theta) will the cylinder of height h and radius r will tumble?

My thinking is that the

length = height = h
2r = w
It seems that this cylinder will tumble when the angle is large enough to cause the center of gravity to go beyond the supporting edge.

I am not sure how to go about this...?
