Activity: Torque and equilibrium

IB Physics: Activity: Torque and equilibrium

Up to this point in the course we have only dealt with the motion of point masses. When considering larger bodies we have assumed that all forces act on the centre of mass.In this example Tension and Gravitational force are acting.The condition for translational equilibrium is that the sum of all forces should equal zero. Now consider this example.This is actually rather a complicated situation since the point where...
