Equilibrium of moments on a two-arm lever (EM049)

Equilibrium of moments on a two-arm lever (EM049)

fundamentals of the equilibrium of moments and application of the law of levers

CodeEM049

Description:

  • EM 049is used to investigate the fundamentals of the equilibrium of moments based on the example of a two-arm lever.
  • Moments occurring on the lever are to be brought to equilibrium.
  • A centrally mounted beam represents a two-arm lever.
  • Movable riders are placed on the lever and weights are applied.
  • Equilibrium is attained by moving the weights.
  • Distances from the pivot point – the lever arms – can be read from an integrated scale.
  • The calculation of the lever arms is verified in the experiment.
  • A vertical column carries the lever.
  • A sturdy base plate ensures that the unit stands securely.

Learning Objective/Experiments:

  • fundamentals of the equilibrium of moments: applied forces, generated moments and equilibrium.
  • action of forces dependent on the lever arm.

Scope of delivery:

  • 1 experimental unit
  • 1 set of weights
  • 1 set of instructional material

Accessories:

Optional: WP 300.09 Laboratory trolley
