Multiple Choice

A 20 kg, 5 m-long bar of uniform mass distribution is attached to the ceiling by a light string, as shown. Because the string is off-center (2 m from the right edge), the bar does not hang horizontally. To fix this, you place a small object on the right edge of the bar. What mass should this object have, to cause the bar to balance horizontally?
