A 0.142 kgkg remote control 21.0 cmcm long rests on a table, as shown in the figure(Figure 1), with a length LL overhanging its edge. To operate the power button on this remote requires a force of 0.360 N. How far can the remote control extend beyond the edge of the table and still not tip over when you press the power button? Assume the mass of the remote is distributed uniformly, and that the power button is 1.41 cm from the overhanging end of the remote.

Question

A 0.142 kgkg remote control 21.0 cmcm long rests on a table, as shown in the figure(Figure 1), with a length LL overhanging its edge. To operate the power button on this remote requires a force of 0.360 N.

How far can the remote control extend beyond the edge of the table and still not tip over when you press the power button? Assume the mass of the remote is distributed uniformly, and that the power button is 1.41 cm from the overhanging end of the remote.
