Equal Torques, But Not Equal Masses
Description: This two-piece broom will show how unequal masses can cause equal torques.
Instructions: Find the center of gravity of the broom. The broom has been severed at this point and is held together by a small dowel. Seperate the broom into two parts. Mass the two parts to show that the masses are different even though the torques were equal.
Parts: broom (in two pieces)
Setup Time: 1 hour
