    Hi Syndy,

    Could you use the template again next time ?

    Strange, I read "Draw on Fig. 5.1 the metre rule with load Q on it".
    All they want you to do is let the correct end of the ruler rest on the bench and write some numbers in relevant places. I would just copy the 49.7 and 84.2 -- after all they mention a "49.7" mark and a "84.2 mark"

    I'm pretty much forbidden by PF rules to show you the picture I just had fun making, but if you can post an attempt, I'm certainly allowed to comment :wink: !

    Thank you very much for your reply.
    Do you mean I don't put the meter rule over the pivot instead I put it on bench? The answer says the rule to be rule tilted and on bench!

    Do you think it will be like this?

    Sorry I don't know how to use the template.

    Yes, that would be the diagram BvU has, I'm sure.

    The marking notes in the 'solution' mention "suitable number(s)", but I suppose Syndy's diagram demonstrates that he/she correctly interpreted those numbers.

    If you want to make absolutely sure, draw in both numbers.
