I'm stuck on these problems!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. Suppose a 90.0-g mass is placed at the 82.0 cm mark of a 120.0 g uniform meterstick. At what mark will the meterstick balance?

For this problem, I did TCCW=TCW. I think the TCW is (90 g)*(9.8 m/s^2)*(32 cm). For TCCW, I am not sure because I do not know where the pivot point is.

2. A 10,000 kg bridge of length 10 m is supported at both ends. If a 2000-kg car is parked on the bridge 3.0 m from the left support, what are the supporting forces at the left and right ends?

I drew a diagram for this problem, but I do not know how to calculate the supporting forces.
