SMT-MM-03 is used to investigate the fundamentals of the equilibrium of moments based
on the example of a two-arm lever. Moments occurring on the lever are to be brought to
equilibrium. A centrally mounted beam represents a two-arm lever. Movable riders are
placed on the lever and weights are applied. Equilibrium is attained by moving the weights.
Distances from the pivot point – the lever arms – can be read from an integrated scale. The
calculation of the lever arms is verified in the experiment. A vertical column carries the lever.
A sturdy base plate ensures that the unit stands securely
