    A non-uniform box is on a slope ( see pic )

    The centre of mass is at B

    The geometrical centre is at A.

    Should i draw the normal reaction through B or A ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Get Me Off ( excellent name btw !! )

    So are you saying that the reaction should be drawn through the centre of mass ?

    If you need to be that precise, I'd be inclined to draw it through the point where the vertical through the centre of gravity intersects with the plane.
