A pivot balances a non- uniform object on a knife edge. To do this, a weight is suspended from the left hand end of the object. Where is the C.G of the object? What is the direction of moment generated due to the weight?

Expert Answer:

Moment due to suspended weight balances the moment due to own weight of object.
Hence centre of gravity is at the right side of knife edge .
 
 Moment due to the suspended weight is counterclockwise as shown in figure
