Equilibrium of a Suspended Mobile
A mobile consisting of connected weights and massless rods is shown. Each mass
hanging from a lever arm
produces a net torque that contributes to the equilibrium configuration of the system.

DETAILS
The conditions of equilibrium are: for the sphere and the rest of the masses,
, for the cone and the masses at the bottom,
and the last,
.
