    Hi can someone please show me how to do this question, Ive been trying to do it for hours. I’ve got to be missing something.

    There is a 100g mass sitting on the 10cm mark, and a 50gmass sitting on the 60cm mark. Force acts at the 30cm mark. I’m told that the centre of mass is at the 50cm mark and I need to find force F

    Thanks

    The moment on the right must add to the moment on the left. And 30cm is the pivot so distances are measured from it. Does that help in any way?
