The torque exerted by the display on the hinge at
a particular angle is given by:
Torque
= Weight x Distance from the Axis of Rotation to Center of Gravity
x Cos of the Angle
If the weight of the display is evenly distributed,
the distance from the axis of rotation to the center of gravity
is equal to half the length of the display. (Example shown below)
