Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsay on Tuesday, January 8, 2008 at 9:19pm.

A 2.6 m long, 16 kg piece of plywood is sitting on a pair of sawhorses. The sawhorses are .3 m from the left end and .5 m in from the right end of the plywood. A 4 kg circular saw is sitting 1 m in from the left end of the plywood. How much force is each sawhorse applying? Assume the plywood is of uniform constant.

Again, I'm lost. Any help is much appreciated.
