Yes, it would be.Originally posted by Moose352
Okay, if I had a seesaw of 2 kg, which was 10 meters long, with a child (4kg) at each end, then what would be the force exerted on the fulcrum. Would it not be 2g + 4g + 4g?
Say for example one kid weighs 2kg (small kid). Then the balanced force acting on the fulcrum is 2+2+2 and the rotational force (moment) is 2.What would be the force be if the seesaw became to rotate (that is, the net torque is not 0).
