Problem P. 4639. (May 2014)

P. 4639. A uniform density cube of mass \(\displaystyle m=2.7\) kg is on the horizontal tabletop. What should the least force be, in order that the cube turns about one of its edge? The coefficient of static friction is big enough, so the cube does not slide while it is turning. What is the least value of the coefficient of static friction?
