    What's that sentence Dywyddyr keeps throwing your way?
    ... Oh yes, meaningless drivel.

    Balance is gravity, if something is balanced it is balanced to gravity.

    Um, gravity IS the "perpendicular force".
    There is NO "motion of the Earth".
    If something is fixed it isn't (and doesn't need to be) balanced.

    This is nonsense.

    No it's not.

    Yes it is, to balance a lever arm that has a fulcrum under the arm, the arm has to be equal both sides to balance to the force of g.

    like wise the fulcrum must have enough mass and surface contact to balance the arm.

    I foresee a change of venue for this thread.

    TC, just for kicks and entertainment, please define "fulcrum" as you understand it.

    Fulcrum is the perpendicular point of counterbalancing a force or a leverage point by placing an object under a lever,

    Gluing something to the floor does not equate to adding gravity to it... seriously...

    What's your download, where'd you get your info? It's so faulty as to be laughable...

    Per Merriam Websters Dictionary:
    fulcrum
    noun ful·crum \ˈfu̇l-krəm, ˈfəl-\

    : the support on which a lever moves when it is used to lift something
    One of our all-time favorite lists:
    10 Charming Words for Nasty People »
    plural fulcrums or ful·cra
    Full Definition of FULCRUM
    1
    a : prop; specifically : the support about which a lever turns
    b : one that supplies capability for action

    2: a part of an animal that serves as a hinge or support

    Origin of FULCRUM
    Late Latin, from Latin, bedpost, from fulcire to prop — more at balk
    First Known Use: 1668


    Maybe it'd be better to use the definition for kids...

    ''the support about which a lever turns''

    That is what I said.

    Why perpendicular? What does counterbalancing a leverage point mean? Why does the "object" have to be "under" the lever?
    A fulcrum does not require "mass" or "surface contact" - it could be a single point (and is mathematically, which is supposed to be the whole purpose of this exercise in the first place)

    I am representing singular points, the object under the lever's objective is to gain height to allow any movement of any horizontal plane. Counter balancing the lever point/pivot point is counterbalancing the force to the perpendicular force of gravity on the horizontal plane gaining by gaining height to allow balancing the horizontal lever by centralising the lever to the linear height.

    The upright opposes the force of gravity ''pushing back'' against the lever arm that wants to fall .

    actual diagram

    How can a point have mass? Why does a fulcrum have to have "mass" anyway?

    The point is an occupied point so it has mass, a fulcrum needs mass for support purposes, a plank of wood on a straw with only a perpendicular force applied to a straw would buckle the straw, however a 1000 straws bounded together would give more points of perpendicular points of mass creating stability to counteract the weight of the plank.
    The planks area is then spread out over an opposing area rather than the gravitational force being applied to a singular mass point.

    So you agree with me that it is impossible to ride a bike without a third (or fourth) point of contact.

    No the forward momentum and balance of the rider allows you to ride a bike.
