1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform beam of weight 50N is 3.0m long and is supported on a pivot situated 1.0m from one end. When a load of weight W is hung from that end, the beam is in equilibrium. What is the value of W? I know that the sum of all moments about any given point on an object in equilibrium is equal to zero but I'm not sure how to go about this, any help would be appreciated!
