Balance the scale

If you've been wondering what the correct answer is, here's standard the calculation including the weight of the bar for balancing :-

Weight on left side x Length of left side of the bar + Weight of bar x ( Left length of bar - half the length of the bar ) = Weight on Right Side x ( Length of bar - length of left side of bar)

Now to put the known figures in

  • For the left hand side the downward torque is 2 x 400 + 2 x ( 400 - 300 ) = 1000
  • For the right hand side the downward torque is 4 x ( 600 - 400 ) = 800

Therefore in our situation Terry's side will drop to the floor.
