Two people sit on a seesaw. They sit in positions such that the
seesaw is balanced in a horizontal position. True/False: The two people must weigh the
If an object is in equilibrium:
the net force on it must be zero
the net torque on it must be zero
both of the above
neither of the above
Ralph noticed that both torque and work are
obtained by multiplying a force times a distance. He wants to know: how are they different?

The comments in the next next two boxes go into a big, mostly anonymous text
file that I skim through before the morning lecture, using the comments to help
me plan class discussion. ("Mostly anonymous", because I can track down who made
what comment, but it takes some effort on my part to do so.) Therefore, if you
really want to make sure I see your question/comment and answer it individually,
you should send it to me via email and not through this form.
