Turning moment (torque)


1. Left drag the objects arrowed in the following diagram to alter their positions to achieve new equilibriums.

3. Right click (or control + left click) anywhere and then drag to translate the whole system.

4. The beam is capable to be turned to any, but not a (nearly) vertical position.

5. The mass of the beam and of the spring balance are neglected.

6. If unfortunately the beam "collapses", reset the page and start again.
