A 984 kg car is driving along a boardwalk. The car's center of mass is 33 cm in front of the rear wheels, and the distance between the front and rear wheels is 2 m. What total force does the car's front tires exert on the boardwalk? Give your answer in Newtons.
Set the total moment about a line through the back tires' ground contact points equal to zero.
984*g*0.33 - F*2.0 = 0
Solve for F
