PIRA 1J40.20 Resolution of Forces: Meter Stick Balance
Photo Shows the Demonstration Used by the University of Texas at
Instructions / Notes:
A fulcrum and a half a meter stick are provided along with three identical masses.
Place the masses on the hooks at each end of the meter stick so that the two opposing (R x F)'s balance.
Example: 3 masses will balance if 2 mass are placed 1 r to the left of the fulcrum and 1 mass is place at 2 r to the right side of the fulcrum.
