mechanics help, torque
A uniform rod AB of length 5m and mass 6kg is pivoted at C. where AC=1.5m . calculate the mass of the particle which must be attached at A to maintain equilibrium with the rid horizontal
can anyone tell me if my diagram is correct? because i keep getting the wrong answer!
thank you

I think that your diagram is not completely correct since the weight should be placed at the middle of AB and not on C

Okay, I have redrawn it,
so would me equation be
$\displaystyle 6g \times 1m = F \times 1.5m $???
