  • Challenge:  place all of the following bricks on the left- hand side of the see saw “equation”:  5 Kg at 2 meters, 15 Kg at 1.5 meters, 20 Kg at 1 meter, and 15 Kg at 0.5 meters.  Use the equation we came up with in class to balance the see- saw by using only two bricks.  If you can do it with two, can you do it with three

    You can use the balance lab and trial and error to solve the problem, but you will still need to bring me a solution that uses the equation, and proves your solutions. 

    3 sparkens for any correct solutions, Good Luck!!!
