Question

Position a pole across the back of a chair (serving as a
fulcrum) and hang a two pound weight on one end of the pole.
Position a five pound weight on the other side of the pole such
that the weights are balanced. **Measure and record the
distances of the two weights from the fulcrum** and write an
explanation of your results.

**Distance of 5lb weight from fulcrum: ?**

**Distance of 2lb weight from fulcrum: ?**

**Explanation:**

Answer #1

The fulcrum is acting as the pivot point of rotation, and both the weights of 5lb and 2lb are applying equal torque and opposite in direction of each .

Suppose the length of the pole is 1m. Now let us take the distance of weight 2lb from fulcrum be 'x' so the distance of weight from fulcrum will be '1-x' .

Torque applied by weight 2lb = 2gx

torque applied by weight 5lb = 5g(1-x) = 5g - 5gx

Since both weights balance each other that means torque applied bu them is equal to each other.

So 2gx = 5g - 5gx

=> 2x = 5 - 5x

=> x = 5/7

So the distance of block of weight 2lb from fulcrum is 5/7 = 0.714m

And distance of block of weight 5lb from fulcrum is 1 - 5/7 = 2/7 = 0.286m

Position a pole across the back of a chair (serving as a
fulcrum) and hang a two pound weight on one end of the pole.
Position a five pound weight on the other side of the pole such
that the weights are balanced. Measure and record the distances of
the two weights from the fulcrum and write an explanation of your
results.

Finding the Spring Constant
We can describe an oscillating mass in terms of its position,
velocity, and acceleration as a function of time. We can also
describe the system from an energy perspective. In this experiment,
you will measure the position and velocity as a function of time
for an oscillating mass and spring system, and from those data,
plot the kinetic and potential energies of the system.
Energy is present in three forms for the mass and spring system....

If two wires carry current next to each other, they will exert a
force on each other. The force is caused by magnetic fields. One
current creates a magnetic field, and this field exerts a force on
the other current. The magnitude of the field created by a long,
straight current-carrying wire is given by Equation 1 below;
B= (μ0i)/(2πr)
where i is the current and r is the distance from the wire. The
magnitude of the force exerted on...

Two painters are working on a platform hanging off the side of a
building. The platform is 10 meters
long and supported by two cables. The painters are represented
by vector forces in the free-body drawing
below. The weights of the objects are: Platform 184 N, Sue 130
N, Jack 220 N. Calculate the force in each
cable when the painters are in the position shown below(Case
1).
To start, locate the pivot point where Cable 1 attached to the...

MOMENT OF INERTIA LAB Apparatus Only (P3) With Masses (P4) With
Block (P5) Setup You have a T-shaped apparatus that can spin about
a vertical axis. One end of a light string is wrapped around the
vertical shaft of the apparatus. The other end passes over a pulley
and has a known mass hung from it to establish tension in the
string. By measuring the acceleration of the hanging mass, the
rotational inertia of the apparatus can be determined.
Specifically,...

Targeting Specific Muscles
1. Review the descriptions of different bodybuilding exercises
below
.2. Try doing or simulating each exercise with your own body
(without the weights of course).
3. Based on the descriptions of which actions are performed by
each muscle, and information about where the muscles insert into
bones, try to determine which muscle is targeted by the exercise.
Note that each exercise targets one of the muscles in the list
below.
4. In your notebook record:. The name...

Example of observation:
AJ is standing in the play room facing the toy bin. She bends
down and grasps the end of a string attached to a duck pull toy.
She pulls the duck out of the bin by the string using her right
hand and bends her knees and squats down next to it. With her right
forefinger she pushes a button on the duck’s back which plays a
song. She stands up holding the string in her right...
