EQUILIBRIUM MODEL / EXPERIMENT TWO
Freeman, Razella E.
Low, Sharon J.
Our equilibrium model explores balance in relation to the multi-directionality of a sphere form and investigates the forces of torque. By manipulating the center of gravity of the system, we were able to examine the concept of torque, employing its nuances as well as compression and tension forces to achieve planar equilibrium. Evident in each diagram, the wooden sphere rests asymmetrically within the system, introducing an unbalance. This unbalance, however, is reconciled through torque.
