After you've seen it, I forgot to add this in...Why does it tip to the right?

The correct answer is answer B! Becuase an unbalenced force, being the added newtons on the right side is causing the object to tip to the right.

Theres no formula for that. Do youknow Newtons laws of motion?

I forgot them all. I forgot a lot about Physics over the break. All I know is that weight is measured in Newtons and mass is measured in Kilograms. :tongue:

Lucky for you I just got into this unit.

Newtons 1st law.
An object at rest will remain at rest unless affected by an out side force.
An object in motion will go at the same speed and direction unless affected by an outside force.

Newtons 2nd law.
Force = mass x acceleration or F =MA

Newtons 3rd law.
For every action, there is a reaction.

I think those are it but, not 100% sure.:oops:
