Torque Balancer

The Torque Balancer Interactive is a skill-building activity in which learners adjust the position and mass of one or more hanging weights in order to balance the torque resulting from up to four hanging weights on the opposite side of a beam. The Interactive consists of 12 different difficulty levels. If a problem is missed, you can try a very similar problem until you get it correct.
