1. ## Can some1 solve this question which is about Equilibrium of a Rigid Body please?

Can some1 solve this question (the png link above) for me please? urgent~

2. Did you try to solve the problem?

If so, you should've posted what you tried first.

Did you try balancing the moments?

Clockwise moment = Anticlockwise moment

And;

Moment of a force = Force x Perpendicular distance from pivot.

I am just wondering if the height difference makes any changes.

I don't think so. M = F x Perp. D dosen't involve distances that are parallel to the force.
