    Alright pretend this is a mobile in equilibrium. I'm given that object B is .735kg and i need to determine the masses of the other ojects....

    Hi ratt10mm,
    15m looks wrong, isn't it rather .15m?

    Anyway, you know the law of leverage, plus you know that B must be balanced against C+D. That's where to start, I think.
