"A one meter board with uniform density, hangs in static equilibrium from a rope with tension T. A weight hangs from the left end of the board 0.2m away in distance. What is the mass of the board"

• physics -

You know the center of mass of the board is at the midpoint. Sum moments around the rope connection to get the mass of the board.
