When a body does not return to its previous position after being minimally disrupted by an external force, it is in unstable equilibrium. Examples of unstable equilibrium include a bottle balanced on the edge of its mouth, a cone balanced on its apex, and a book balanced on its edge.

The log is in the state of equilibrium.
