Use the second condition for equilibrium (net ? = 0) to calculate Fp in Example 9.1, employing any data given or solved for in part (a) of the example. Example 9.1 She Saw Torques On A Seesaw The two children shown in ?Figure 9.9 ?are balanced on a seesaw of negligible mass. (This assumption is made to keep the example simple—more involved examples will follow.) The first child has a mass of 26.0 kg and sits 1.60 m from the pivot.(a) If the second child has a mass of 32.0 kg, how far is she from the pivot?

Solution 4PE Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 3 Apply the second condition of equilibrium that is torque applied by both of the child will be equal. Here, , is the distance from pivot and mass of the first child respectively. , is the distance from pivot and mass of the second child (heavier child) respectively, g is the acceleration due to gravity. Step 2 of 3 Substitute 26.0 kg for , 32.0 kg for , 9.80 m/s2 for g and 1.60 m for . Heavier child sits distance to balance the seesaw.
