An object of mass 1 kg sits on a horizontal beam at 1 m from a pivot point. What is the torque about the pivot point that the weight of the mass causes? a) 1 Nm. b) 2 Nm. c) 3 Nm. d) 4 Nm. e) 9.8 Nm. 013 qmult 00500 2 3 1 moderate math: torque calculation with a beam 5. Two objects are sitting on a uniform horizontal beam. The beam rests on a pivot at its center of mass. The beam is free to rotate about the pivot. Object 1 sits on the lefthand side of the pivot at a distance 1 from the pivot. Object 2 sits on the righthand side at a distance 2 . Given m 1 = Nm 2 , what is 2 in terms of 1 ? HINT: Draw a diagram. a) 2 = N 1 . b) 2 = 1 /N . c) 2 = 1 ....
