A large uniform block rests horizontally on two vertical supports(one support at the left end of the block and another at a distance from the other end) and has a weight hanging from its other 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 of the distance L between the supports for the configuration to remain stable?
What is the minimum value for the hanging weight if L = 1.22 meters and the configuration is to remain stable?
