Expt: Determining an Unknown Weight using Law of Moments

 

Aim: To determine an unknown weight using the Law of Moments

Law of Moments: W1 x L1 = W2 x L2

Apparatus:

Procedure:

  1. Adjust the position of the unknown weight (left arm) using the slider for setting the distance
  2. Similarly, move the weight pan (right arm) to the desired positions by using the slider for setting the distance
  3. Drag and drop the weights in the pan attached to the right arm to balance the weights on both the sides.
