We show the solution to a mechanical equilibrium problem:  one mass is free to swing, the other slides in an inclined slot, they are joined by rigid bars.  Gravity acts downwards.

One mass wants to slide down the slot, but in so doing lifts the other.  Somewhere along the line, an equilibrium is reached.

Where?
