Question

Two children of mass 16 kg and 33 kg sit balanced on a seesaw with the pivot point located at the center of the seesaw. If the children are separated by a distance of 4 m, at what distance from the pivot point is the small child sitting in order to maintain the balance?

Answer #1

Two
children sit on a 10 kg seesaw. The first is 40 kg, and the second
is 30 kg. The first sits 0.5 meters from the seesaw pivot. If the
second child were sitting at the same distance from the pivot as
the first child, what would the angular acceleration of the system
be? (Hint: you must first find the total moment of inertia of the
system, which you can find by adding up all the moments of inertia
of...

Q 1. Suppose two children are using a uniform seesaw that is
3.00 m long and pivoted at 2 m from the left edge, and a 30.0 kg
child sits 1.40 m from the center of mass of the seesaw.
a. Calculate where the second 18.0 kg child must sit
to balance the seesaw ?.
b. How far will the child be from the center of mass of the
seesaw ?
c. How far will the child be from the...

hree children are trying to balance on a seesaw, which consists
of a fulcrum rock, acting as a pivot at the center, and a very
light board 4.2 m long. Two playmates are already on either end.
Boy A has a mass of 45 kg, and boy B a mass of 35 kg.
Where should girl C, whose mass is 25 kg, place herself so as to
balance the seesaw?

Two children are playing on a seesaw. The child on the right
weighs 75 lbs the child on the left weighs 110 lbs. The see saw is
9 feet long.
Find positions for the children where the seesaw will be at
equilibrium. (Assume that the axis of rotation is at 0, to the left
is – to the right is +)
When the seesaw is at equilibrium, where is the center of
mass?
If we ignore the mass of the...

Two children, each with mass m = 24.0 kg, sit on opposite ends
of a narrow board with length L = 4.3 m, width W = 0.22 m, and mass
M = 6.6 kg. The board is pivoted at its center and is free to
rotate in a horizontal circle without friction.
A) What is the rotational inertia of the board plus the children
about a vertical axis through the center of the board?
B) What is the magnitude of...

A 73 kg adult sits at one end of a 10.5 m long board. His 33 kg
child sits on the other end. (a) Where should the pivot be placed
so that the board is balanced, ignoring the board's mass?
Incorrect: Your answer is incorrect. . m (measured from the adult)
(b) Find the pivot point if the board is uniform and has a mass of
15 kg. m (measured from the adult)

A small object with a mass of 1.62 kg is moving with a speed of
290 m/s (with respect to the ground) when it collides with a rod
with a mass of 11.99 kg and a length of L m. The rod is
initially at rest, in a vertical position, and pivots about an axis
going through its center of mass which is located exactly halfway
along the rod. The object imbeds itself in the rod at a distance
L/4...

Two children, each with a mass of 24.6 kg, are at fixed
locations on a merry-go-round (a disk that spins about an axis
perpendicular to the disk and through its center). One child is
0.78 m from the center of the merry-go-round, and the other is near
the outer edge, 2.79 m from the center. With the merry-go-round
rotating at a constant angular speed, the child near the edge is
moving with translational speed of 11.0 m/s.
(a) What is...

A square uniform raft, 16 m by 16 m , of mass 7350 kg , is used
as a ferryboat.
If three cars, each of mass 1350 kg , occupy the NE, SE, and SW
corners, determine the coordinates of the CM of the loaded
ferryboat relative to the center of the raft. Take the origin to be
at the CM of the raft.
