A non-uniform is 3.8-m long and has a weight of 560.-n.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A non-uniform is 3.8-m long and has a weight of 560.-n. The bar is balanced in a horizontal position when it is supported at its geometric center and a 340.-n is suspended 0.70-m from the bar's light end. Sketch this system and find the bar's center of gravity.

    2. Relevant equations

    Sum of torques.

    Autosum of Tc=Tcc

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have no clue. We've done examples like this; however, not like this one. :/

    Re: Torque

    I did try, however, multiplying (3.8-m) (560.-n)= (340.-n)(0.70mx) That answer was totally wrong.
