[2 points] Three masses are to be balanced on a uniform board 2.00 m in length, which is pivoted about its center. Masses m A = 5.00 kg and m B = 3.00 kg are positioned at either end as shown. Where (at which value of x to the right of the pivot) should a third mass of 4.00 kg, shown in black, be placed in order to balance the board? a) x = 25.0 cm. b) x = 33.3 cm. c) x = 50.0 cm. d) x = 66.7 cm. x A B 2. [2 points] Two objects of identical shape and volume, but different mass are submerged in a liquid at the same depth, as shown. Object A has a larger mass than object B. The magnitude of the buoyant force is: a) greatest on object A. b) greatest on object B. c) equal for both objects. A B
