Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Joshua on Monday, June 20, 2011 at 1:12am.

A horizontal massless beam of length 1 m is supported at two points. One fulcrum is at one end of the beam, point "O", and the other at the 0.60m point "P". Two equal weights are placed on the beam, one at O and one at point Q at distance x from O. Find the value of x that will result in the support force at P being twice the magnitude as the support force at O.
