Wynn Dixon PHYS 1240-020 Torque Post Lab Questions 1. 2. There are 3 torques acting on the meterstick in exercise 1. 3. The torques are acting in a counterclockwise direction. 4. The net torque on the meterstick is 0 because it is in static equilibrium. 5. The fulcrum knife-edge was placed at the 40cm mark on the meter stick. This means that the torque force on the right of the meter stick was 10 cm away from the fulcrum and had a mass of 74.9 g. For the meter stick to be in static equilibrium, the sum of the torques on both sides must be equal. The torque on the right side of the meter stick is calculated by using the force of
