The principle of moments says:

If an object is balanced, then the total anticlockwise moments equals the total clockwise moment


Your younger brother weighs 300N and sits 2m from the pivot of the seesaw. If you weigh 700N, where should you sit to balance the seesaw?

anticlockwise moment= clockwise moment
