Ratio of masses, individual weight calculations(Division B)
Hi
I am a newbie at this event. For the division B, we need to find the ratio of the masses which means
Hang 2 masses A, B at a time. At equilibrium, by the law of moment, we can find the Mass A/Mass B ratio.
Similarly, for Mass Band Mass C and Mass B/Mass C ratio.
But how do we find the weights of the individual masses? They say they will give one known mass. So to find the mass A, mass B, mass C should we balance it separately to get the individual weights A, B,C.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

You don't. Rules say you find ratios, not actual masses.Robot2020 wrote: ↑February 16th, 2020, 3:33 pmHi
