I had a question about this lab. Were the two masses given in the beginning. m1=2.674kg and m2=1.100kg. I'm trying to follow the teacher manual and assist my students, but they keep asking about the two masses. They're not specifically labeled either, they just say m1 and m2. I would greatly appreciate the help. Thank you.
   
    I believe there is an error in the translation from the original French version to the English version. In French, numbers are punctuated without commas but rather a space after the hundreds instead.

The masse m1 is therefore 2674 kg and m2 = 1100 kg.

(Je crois qu'il s'agit d'une erreur de traduction de la version originale française vers la version anglaise. En français les chiffres sont écris sans virgule mais habituellement avec un espace après la centaine.

Donc la masse m1 est 2674 kg et m2 = 1100 kg
