1 Balancing Moments

• seesaw: sube y baja 4
• Perpendicular: At a 90 degree angle to something
• Newton: The unit of measurement of force
• Clockwise: In the same direction as the movement of the hands on a clock
• Counterclockwise: In the opposite direction to the movement of the hands on a clock

### Diagram

• a-You have to calculate the moment
• b-The wheel turns more easily when you spin it from near the rim. The distance

M=fd
F=30N
M=fd

Left is 2FI, same result
d=15cm
M=(30) (0.15)=4.5

Right is 2dF, same result
0.15m
M=4.5Nm

## 2 Making a Scale

• Spring constant: A measure of how stiff or strong a spring is
• Extension: The increase in the length of something
• Elastic: A material able to resume its original shape after being stretched or compressed
• Elastic Limit: The extent to which an object can be stretched without permanently altering its shape or size

### Diagram

• a- It refers to how stiff or strong a spring is
• b- It's stiff because a spring with a big spring constant requires more force to extend
