The principle of moments says:

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

Example:

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
