Study the diagram. A fridge has height h, width w, and mass m, which we assume is distributed uniformly throughout the volume of the fridge. A person pushes on the fridge with a horizontal force of magnitude F, applied at a height H above the floor. The coefficient of static friction between the floor and the feet of the fridge is us. Answer the following questions: (A) Assuming sufficiently large μs, what is Fe, the critical value of F that brings the fridge to the verge of tipping, i.e., on the verge of the left feet losing contact with the floor?
