A cubic crate of side s=2.0m is top-heavy: its CG is 18cm above its true center.

Part A) How steep an incline can the crate rest on without tipping over?

Part B) What would your answer be if the crate were to slide at constant speed down the plane without tipping over? (The normal force would act at the lowest corner)
