The point of equilibrium • is the point where the whole weight of an object appears to act on. • It is also the point which an object can be balanced on and it is present in all objects. • It is also known as the centre of gravity of the object FACTORS AFFECTING THE STABILITY OF AN OBJECT 1.

The position of the centre of gravity. the lower the centre of gravity, the more stable the object The base area The wider the base area, the more stable the object


LEVER • is a simple machine


• •

makes work easier have 3 parts : o F = Fulcrum o E = Effort o L = Load CLASSES OF LEVER Notice the middle part of the lever L F F F L E E E L = = = 1st class 2nd class 3rd class

THE MOMENT OF FORCE • The SI unit for moment of force = Newton-metre (Nm) • Formula for moment of force:
Moment of force Force X Perpendicular distance from the = pivot to the force (Nm) (N) (m)

LEVER IN EQUILIBRIUM • when a lever is in equilibrium, the sum of the anticlockwise moments is equal to the sum of the clockwise moments. • The principle of moments can be represented by the following formula:
Load X Distance of load = Effort X Distance of effort from the fulcrum from the fulcrum (E) (L)
