Fig. 1.

The tilt angle is taken with respect to the vertical. Domino hits domino at the point A. The rotation axis of domino is point B, and point E is that of domino . The tilt angle of the head of chain has reached its final value . The first domino has almost reached the stacking angle . The normal force and the friction force that domino exerts on domino are also indicated. The relevant geometric relations are summarized in Table I.
