A large uniform "butcher block" rests on two supports(one support at the left end of the block) and has a weight hanging from its end. The block has a mass of 100 kg and a length of 2 meters. If the hanging weight is 59 newtons, what is the minimum value for L for the configuration to remain stable to?
What is the minimum value for the hanging weight to the nearest tenth of a kilogram if L = 1.22 meters and the configuration is to remain stable?
