The leaning cylinder in Fig. 14 is bound to fall. If, on the other hand, the perpendicular from its centre of gravity fell through its base, it wouldn't topple over.
Поэтому наклонный цилиндр (рис, 14) должен непременно опрокинуться; но если бы он был настолько широк, что отвесная линия, проведенная из его центра тяжести, проходила бы в пределах его основания, цилиндр не опрокинулся бы.
