A 5.0 N uniform meter stick is pivoted so that it can rotate about a horizontal axis through one end. If a 0.15 kg mass is suspended 75 cm from the pivoted end, what is the tension in the string? Please see the attached picture for the arrangement.
The tension in the string, Ft, must apply an opposite torque equal to the torque from ...
Solution proceeds with trying to keep the system in equilibrium.
