Homer is a genius. they should pay him for making these.. we had these in our dorms. look at the base.. it allowed you to lean back and support you.. nice chit. dadasdasdasd

We have these. But without the cushions, so leaning back just jabs wood edges into your back.

we have these at our dorms too. nothing is scarier than first leaning back and not knowing it leans. ******* scary ****

My grade 6 teacher used Swiss Balls instead of chairs. You couldn't lean back and it actually forced you to sit straight up, but it was the comfiest seat i've ever had in school. Plus you could bounce on them if you were fidgety or had a lot of energy.

Fender has been using that since the late 1940's on their guitar amplifiers.

What do you mean? The tilting legs were designed to spread the sound more evenly and enable the guitarist to hear himself - and is very stable on the legs as tube amplifiers of this type typically has a high centre of gravity.

Well yah know how it is. You're rocking out, flailing about, epic air kicks to show just how awesome you are then boom. You kick over the amp.

it's a rectangle. knocking it on its side is quite difficult.

im gonna go ahead and say it won't happen, and even if it did, it wouldn't harm it.

at this point your concern should be less about knocking it over, and more about putting your foot through it.

Well, I think it'd be more of a sweeping, pushing motion, rather than a donkey kick.

but then it isn't falling over.
it's more lifting it up and setting it on its side.

Not if you're using the sole of your shoe against the side of the amp. Albeit this is incredibly difficult without a certain amount of strength, it would be possible if something was wedged on the other side of it.

the point i'm trying to make is:
the force you apply with your foot is greater than that of the force applied to the other side when it falls over.
in this situation, falling over is least of your concerns.

Okay okay, this is getting us no-where
Let's say for the sake of argument, this is all taking place on a big block of Swiss Cheese
Say when you pushed over the amp, the edge of the amp went into one of the holes, giving the leverage to push the amp on it's side.
In the situation you're describing, you'd just be pushing the amp, which in turn would probably leave a nasty scratch on the lino because of the metal stand.
What I'm tryna say is, it's POSSIBLE that something is wedged on the other side i.e the cord. Seeing as the cord is made of rubber, the friction from it on the lino would be enough to cause the force from your sole to tip over the amp.
But of course this all depends if he's using shagged carpeting or not but this situation still works with the Swiss Cheese.
Even if you were to just push along the amp, the legs of the stand would most likely dig into the floor again causing you to get enough leverage to tip over the amp. That theory pretty much works with every given material th

*sigh*
That was all gibberish.
I didn't want to get into this, but you need a lesson in physics.

The side that the amp is going to be pushed onto is the lever arm.
The small lever arm indicates that the will be very little force applied to the ground, and therefore, very little force applied to the ground.
"The bigger they are, the harder they fall" Is what i want you to think right now.
the way it is falling, it isn't going to hurt the amp much, so theres no problem if it did.

On the subject of actually getting it to topple over:
An object topples over when the center of gravity exceeds the support base.
Because this is a wide, short object, the center of gravity will be very difficult to shift left or right.

If we apply the force horizontally to the side of the amp, towards the top to give us the torque we need, you are correct in the regard we need the coefficient of friction to be high enough to keep the amp from sliding.
Now to get into Impact:

Impact = Force/Time.

If you're kicking the amp over, the time is going to be rather small, therefore the impact will be large.

The impact from kicking the amp will hurt the amp more then knocking it over will.
