    Is it because we can consider all blocks but which lies in base like one body with bigger mass centre shift since we adding more blocks?

  • zydde

    Could you use this method to build a bridge across a gap if you used ropes downwards diagonal as an counter weight to pull the bridge back as you walk across to cross the center of mass. And how often is this used to build bridges, Or is it just with ropes and a lot of luck?

    This man would be the greatest teacher of all time. I would be on cloud 9 if I was lucky enough to have been taught by this profoundly amazing man. Good job to you and your team. Thank you for making these videos and I look forward to seeing more from you in the future.

    The tower won't go as far as you like it to go, as this is an example of an infinite geometric series (nearly is). infinite geometric series don't diverge off to infinity or negative infinity, instead they approach a value (converge). Which limits us to a finite length. And although this isn't entirely a geometric series as there is no common ratio between values in the set (1/2, 1/4, 1/6...), the sum of the values won't diverge they will still only approach a finite value like infinite geometric series do.

    You can't build an infinite tower of these because the resolution is too small

    So if you replace, say, the first quarter of the plywood planks with gold, to move the center of gravity back, can you make your tower of Lire lean even further?
