Another Look at the Wine Butler
DeWeerd, Alan J.
Physics Teacher, v45 n7 p438-439 Oct 2007
In a recent article, Iain MacInnes analyzed the static equilibrium of a system consisting of a wine bottle and a wine butler. After discussing that composite system, students can be asked to consider only the bottle (and its contents) as the system. An interesting challenge for them is to describe the forces on the bottle in static equilibrium.
