## Main Question or Discussion Point

you have a balance with 1kg weight in each 1 meter long arm

when its horizontal each 10 N force * 1 m long will balance so the balance wont move

but when you lean the balance 45º the vertical force will be cos 45 * 10 N in each arm so the balance should stay in that position since the forces are equal but it tend to level horizontal

can anyone explain this please
