Question 1-A horizontal force
is applied at the top of an equilateral triangular block having mass . What will be the minimum coefficient of friction required to topple the block before translation?
Question 2-A cube of side and mass is to be tilted at a point by applying a force as shown in the figure. What will be The minimum force required? (Given acceleration due to gravity )

When a force is applied to the triangular block, friction between the base and ground will resist it.
Now, the weight of the block will be acting through the centre of the triangle as seen in the figure below.
The force of friction will be
NOTE: Kindly post the other question as a separate query.

- What do you mean by Torque?
- Is Torque a scalar or vector quantity? If it is a vector, what rule is used to determine its direction?
- What is the dimensional formula of Torque? Also write its S.I units?
- If a body is rotating, is it necessary being acted upon by an external Torque?
- What is the physical meaning of Torque?
- Why do we prefer to use a wrench with a long arm?
- Why the door cannot be rotated by applying force in a direction parallel to the plank of the door?
- Explain that Torque is only due to transverse component of force. Radial component has nothing to do with torque.
- Derive an expression for torque in polar co-ordinate.
