Question
2.15 A large wood beam weighing 800 N is supported by
two posts as shown. If an unthinking man weighing 700 N
were to walk on the overhang portion of the beam, how
far can he go from point A before the beam tips over?
(Assume the beam is resting on the two supports with no
physical connection.)
