1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Torque is used to determine the weight of an object. A 10.0 m long pole weighing 20.0 N has its center of gravity 2.00 m from one end. An object of unknown weight is hung at the end opposite the center of gravity. With the object hanging at this end, the pole now balances 2.00 m from the unknown weight. What is the weight of the unknown weight? 2. Relevant equations T = F * R 3. The attempt at a solution T = 20 * 2 = 40 ?
