Physics 1D03 The uniform beam (weight 4.00 N, length L) is supported by a pin at one end, and a scale that can be placed anywhere along the beam. What will the scale read if it is scale a) at the end of the beam (shown)? b) at the centre of the beam? c) at distance ¼ L from the pin? d) at distance ¾ L from the pin?

2 Physics 1D03 Quiz: The uniform beam (weight W , length L) is supported by a pin at one end, and a scale that can be placed anywhere along the beam. What will the scale read if it is at distance ¾ L from the pin? scale A) 0.5 W B) 0.67 W C) 0.75 W D) 1.33 W E) 1.5 W Physics 1D03 Where should we choose the “pivot point” when calculating torques? (Answer: In Statics problems , it doesn’t matter.) Theorem: If the net force on a body is zero , then the total torque due to all forces will not depend on the choice of “pivot point”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
