      I really wish youtube existed when I was learning math. My teachers, or at least the curriculum they were told to follow, were completely uninteresting. It was up to physics class to make it interesting. I did well anyways but it would be way more fun to learn by analyzing problems like this.

The import part is that the rate at which the added overhang shrinks can be modeled by a harmonic series. And this series diverges.

Please make a Leaning Tower with thin blocks with heavy ends, so that the center of mass is much more on the table side. How would a tower look like if only the thickness is the same, but not the length, center of mass etc.?

But the treu meaning is the basic, not the xemonstration axely but how it works and how we can use those to other things to make better things or maybe to descover other thing because of it. If you find somthing new, Used to find more And ask queostions and try. Srry its hard to tell. It isnt my leguage and i was typing fast but the comments arent wath i thougt i would be
