Joint Entrance Examination/2000 Screening/Q005 Toppling vs Sliding of a cube

Welcome to the Highschool Help Forum!

The forum is currently in "Beta" stage of development. You can ask questions and answer/discuss them. The basic functionalities are present. What's required is a more aesthetic look to the Static pages and a more user friendly setup. This will happen over the time gradually as we start creating some content.

The site has a lot of tools, like posting mathematical calculations, images and diagrams; categorizing questions and so on. Having them here is NO GOOD unless you know how to use them. I am thoroughly against compiling a list of these features and then writing about them. As soon as you do not understand how to do something or use a certain feature, report that on "How To"s Section of the forum. Your queries will be answered there.

If you have any ideas/discussion regarding the site/comments, please go to Discussions regarding Highschool Help Forum

Lastly, thanks for joining in the site's development process! It matters!

Original Question by Dharav talk

Here's the question...

A cubical block of side L rests on a rough horizontal surface with coefficient of friction μ. A horizontal force F is applied as shown. If the coefficient of friction is sufficiently high so that the block does not slide before toppling, the minimum force required to topple the block is... File:JEE2000ScreeningQ005.gif

  • (A) intinitesimal
  • (B) mg/4
  • (C) mg/2
  • (D) mg(1-μ)
