Question

You’ve been given the challenge of balancing a uniform, rigid
meter-stick with mass *M* = *95* g on a pivot.
Stacked on the 0-cm end of the meter stick are *n* identical
coins, each with mass *m* = *4.3* g, so that the
center of mass of the coins is directly over the end of the meter
stick. The pivot point will be measured from the 0-cm end of the
meter stick.

Determine the distance *d*_{a} in cm if there is
*n _{a}* = 1 coin on the end of the meter stick, and
the system is to remain in static equilibrium. 1)

Determine the distance *d*_{b} (in cm) if there
are *n _{b}* =

What is the minimum number of coins you would have to stack at
the 0-cm mark if the distance was less than *9.99* cm? Round
to the nearest whole coin. 3) n=
