Review: PanBalance Problems
Balance
Beam Activity  Use basic equation principles
with the virtual Balance to find the weights of various figures. You
are presented with a number of shapes and one of their weights is
known. Your goal is to find the weights of the other objects by finding
the relationships between the objects of various weights. This is
achieved with a simulation of a balance beam to tell you how the
weights relate.
