Analysis In part A of the experiment, the reason why we add weights on the pan consecutively,(removing one mass on the other pan then adding one on the another) is because, so we can determine on what is its Equilibrium state with respect to the model balance. Then in part B of the experiment, The spring balance is used to determine what is the required amount of force and its direction to make the system in equilibrium And in part C of the experiment, the reason why using the second hole as a new axis of rotation in determining the weight of the balance beam is because so that the center of gravity of the beam does not pass through the new axis of rotation. The logic behind this is the same as we used on part A of the experiment but instead of using the the center of the balance beam as a reference on its equilibrium, we used the second hole as a new axis of rotation, making the center of balance beam and remaining the first Pan as the equilibrants in determining the weight of the balance beam.
