# physics-- deflection

hello, again
the problem is... I don't know what to measure/look for if we want to calculate deflection. From doing this project, we are to define what deflection is.

As I understand your problem, you are putting a force on a horizontal cantilever. Measure the deflection of the cantilever at the point the force acts on. Deflection is the distance moved.
