A uniform meter stick of mass M has an empty paint can of mass m hanging from one end. The meter stick and the can balance at a point 19.9 cm from the end of the stick where the can is attached. When the balanced stick-can system is suspended from a scale, the reading on the scale is 2.49 N. Calculate the mass of the meter stick.Calculate the mass of the paint can.
