- Homework Statement:
- Trying to answer the question shown in the picture below. I have to deduce the mass of the ruler.

- Relevant Equations:
- Assuming it’s a moments problem

The answer is 127.04g. I’m getting close but can’t get the answer.

Using 9.81 for gravity, the force where the balance is is 2.10(58146)N

As it is balanced

2.10N x 0.29m = W x 0.50m where 0.50 is the centre of mass

That gives W = 1.22N

= 124.5g?
