Physics mobile torque question?
A mobile of toy penguins hang from a ceiling. Each cross bar is horizontal, has negligible mass, and extends three times as far to the right of the wire it as to the left. Penguin 1 has mass m1=48 kg. What are the masses of a) penguin 2, (b) penguin 3 (c) penguin 4.
Penguin 1 is all the way to the left.
explain and show steps, the ans is penguin 1=12 kg penguin 2=3 kg and penguin 3 equals 4 kg
how do you solve this using torque equations, there are like 3 axis of rotation and it's complicated its one on top of other, or can you use proporitonaliyt
