Hey there, I'm trying to figure out how torque operates in combination and I can't find anything relating to this in any textbooks or online. So if you a mass held by two strings in equilibrium, the force of gravity is split evenly between them right? What happens if you have torque instead of a linear force? A common example I have seen when looking around is that if you have three masses at known distances on a see-saw in equilibrium and you know two of the masses you can solve for the third. But now what happens if you have a system in equilibrium where you apply a torque on one side of the see saw which is opposed by two forces at different distances on the other? I came up with a concrete example in the figure below so it is more clear. Are the forces equal or are the torques equal? Or perhaps neither?
