W= 167.4grams a= 49cm b= 98cm m= 100grams The angle is 51 degrees based on the measurements during the lab, but I have to figure out how to do it using the torque balance equation. What my guess is for the equation is Wga = mgbsin(angle Am I going in somewhat of the right direction? Also how would I get the angle by it's self. Or how do you move sin if I do at all? Thanks.
