Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Stephanie on Friday, April 22, 2011 at 12:54am.

A 30-lb weight is attached to one end of a 6-ft uniform beam whose own weight is 20-lb. Where is the balance point of the system? I know the answer is "1.2 ft from the 30-lb weight" but I can't figure out how to get there. Please help. Thanks...
