This is just a scenario I have been pondering. Imagine one took a board and placed it on a pivot in perfect equilibrium. Next they added two 10KG weights 1 inch out, on each side of the pivot. The board would probably not snap with the weights at this distance, but lets say one were to keep increasing the distance of the weights (in identicle increments) from the pivot. Experience leads me to the conclusion that eventually the board will break, but given my current knowledge in physics I could not model this with equations. I know that there is a net torque of 0 at the pivot. I know though that this does not mean that in reality the torque doesn't exist. However I am curious as to the exact explanation of why the board snaps, and a way to model this scenario.
