Imagine two kids on a see saw. Kid A is further from the fulcrum then kid B. Which kid will be up and which kid will be down. If the weights are further from the axle, then that side will be leveraged down. Don't forget once the weight is pushed out, it cannot come back because it is on a little one way bearing.
