or rather, two scales.

would half of my weight show up on each, or a function of theta (theta being the angle of my splayed legs)?

thanks a million,

You can make them divide to any number from 0- your weight on either side. Just try it and you’ll see.

It’s not a function of angle, it’s a function of how far your center of mass is from each scale. If you stood directly over scale 1 and only touched scale 2 with your toe, scale 1 will read your full weight and scale 2 will read zero, right? And if you stood so that your center of mass is directly above the midpoint of the two scales, each scale will read 1/2 of your weight. In any case, the two numbers will always add up to your full weight, of course.
