Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, December 4, 2007 at 12:37am.

A .100 kg meter stick is supported at its 40.0 cm mark by a string attached to the ceiling. A .700 kg mass hangs vertically from the 5.00 cm mark. A mass, m, is attached somewhere on the meter stick to keep it horizontal and in rotational and translational equilibrium. If the tension in the string attached to the ceiling is 19.6, determine (a) the value of m and (b) its point of attachment on the stick. (answer: m=1.2 kg, d=19.6 m, and position= 59.6 cm) I don't know where to start. Any help would be helpful!
