Al's old rear-wheel-drive (2WD) pick-up truck is stuck in the snow. He does have a few concrete blocks loaded in the back but where should he locate them for maximum weight and traction on the rear tires? In front of the axle as far forward as possible, directly over the rear axle or behind the axle as far to the rear as possible?


Hint

The bed of the truck is a kind of lever and the rear wheels are the fulcrum.
