    A metre rule is suspended horizontally using two small loops of string and newton meters. A mass of weight W is suspended at a distance d from the left hand newton meter using a loop of string. You may need to adjust the position of the clamps to ensure that the rule remains horizontal.

    Suggest two improvements for this experiment.

    First of all, what is the experiment? And what clamps?? You only mentioned strings!

    But anyway:
    1) the metre ruler might bend, maybe using lika a metal rod would be better.

    2) Instead of attaching the weight with a loop of string, you might want to use something that doesn't slide around, i.e. a clamp.
