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. Homework Equations

T = F * R

3. The Attempt at a Solution
