Force needed to tip a cow

hahahaha. Found this on Digg.

Too lazy to verify the force calculation as my physics got really rusty (fadhli, aimran sila tolong). The only flaw I found is that the centre of mass should have been higher.

Get a partner, and lets go tip a cow!

salam bro,

i'm happy to report that the calculations given are sound and consistent. think of a problem of a ladder leaning on a wall and the force/torque needed to bring the ladder down. its more or less like that problem ;-)

aimran

p/s. bila nak jumpa nih?
