Equilibrium of Moments on a Two-Arm Lever EM 049

Equilibrium of Moments on a Two-Arm Lever

Type: EM 049
Name: Equilibrium of Moments on a Two-Arm Lever
Categorie:
Technical Description

  EM 049 is used to investigate the fundamentals of the equilibrium of moments based on the example of a two-arm lever. Moments occurring on the lever are to be brought to equilibrium.
  A centrally mounted beam represents a two-arm lever. Movable riders are placed on the lever and weights are applied. Equilibrium is attained by moving the weights. Distances from the pivot point - the lever arms - can be read from an integrated scale. The calculation of the lever arms is verified in the experiment.
  A vertical column carries the lever. A sturdy base plate ensures that the unit stands securely. 
 

Learning Objectives / Experiments
