Careful about the generalization of balance: triangles of equal area won't necessarily balance even though they are of the same weight, since a long skinny triangle will create more torque than one more compact.Rileyhttp://larkolicio.us/blognoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5964889903484807623.post-9976342343605984552009-12-11T02:59:50.000-08:002009-12-11T02:59:50.000-08:00@joshgI had done a lab re: draw v. construct, but ...@joshg<br>I had done a lab re: draw v. construct, but it was in the first quarter. Needed to refresh. <br><br>@Riley<br>I had the same conversation about torque with a colleague yesterday. Does that apply when dealing with median? To be honest, if he can just prove that all six triangles have The same areas, I'd be happy.David Coxnoreply@blogger.com
