Example text

2. If the bar of a seesaw having a uniform density and cross section is placed on a fulcrum (or pivot) for support such that the fulcrum is exactly half way along the length of the seesaw, the weight of the seesaw will act vertically downwards through the fulcrum. In this case at any specified distance from the fulcrum, the turning moment (that is the downward force imposed at that point) will be equal on both sides of the fulcrum. The seesaw is said to be in equilibrium or to be balanced, and will therefore rest in a horizontal position.
