“Suppose the weight, B to be sixteen pounds and suppose the fulrum to be placed so near it, as to be raised by the power A, of four pounds hanging equally distant from the fulcrum and the end of the lever. If now the power A be removed, and another of two pounds, C, be placed at te end of the lever, its force will be just equal to A, placed at the middle of the lever.” -Comstock 1850
