Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Matt on Saturday, September 26, 2009 at 4:59pm.

We consider a man of mass m = 84 kg as shown in the figure below using crutches. The crutches each make an angle of θ = 26degrees with the vertical. Half of the person's weight is supported by the crutches, the other half is supported by the normal forces acting on the soles of the feet. Assuming that the person is at rest, find the magnitude of the force supported by each crutch.

Thanks!
