Caption: Big apple balanced by a small apple. Two apples of different masses are placed on a wooden ruler supported from underneath. The net torque is zero and the mechanical system is at equilibrium when the big apple is closer to the support point (fulcrum) than the small apple. This is an example of a Class 1 lever.
