Homework Help: Im stuck!

  1. Oct 13, 2005 #1
    "A meter stick is found to balance at the 49.7cm mark when placed on a fulcrum. When a 50 gram mass is attached at the 10cm mark, the fulcrum must be moved to the 39.2 cm mark for balance. What is the mass of the meter stick?"

    thats the question and the last one on my homework and its given me the u-know-what. i've tried workin it - one answer i got was 245g... but some reason i am quite sure its wrong.. so any hints or help would be greeeat :smile:
