Simulate lever balance with weight and gravity

Hi, i'm modeling a steadycam and i need to find the right weights to keep it balanced, we can simplify it as a lever with a fulcrum in its center and different weights on both sides.

I simply need to simulate the position of the lever around the axis of the fulcrum with gravity, then i'll ad more weight on one of the 2 sides to try balance the "lever" and keep it horizontal.

Thanks.
