A 5m long diving board of negligible mass is supported by two pillars. One pillar is at the end of left of the diving board, the other is 1.50m away. Find the forces exerted by the pillars when a 90kg diver stands at the far end of the board.

**Physics**

Starting from rest, a 1.7x10-4 kg flea springs straight upward. While the flea is pushing off from the ground, the ground exerts an average upward force of 0.44 N on it. This force does 2.4x10-4 J of work on the flea. (a) What is the flea's speed when it leaves the ground? (b...

Starting from rest, a 2.1x10-4 kg flea springs straight upward. While the flea is pushing off from the ground, the ground exerts an average upward force of 0.37 N on it. This force does 1.5x10-4 J of work on the flea. (a) What is the flea's speed when it leaves the ground? (b...

**Physics**

A high diver of mass 68.2 kg jumps off a board 10.4 m above the water. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 . If his downward motion is stopped 3.58 s after he enters the water, what average upward force did the water exert on him? I already calculated that his velocity ...

A high diver of mass 60.0 kg steps off a board 10.0 m above the water and falls vertical to the water, starting from rest. If her downward motion is stopped 1.80 s after her feet first touch the water, what average upward force did the water exert on her?

Joshua jumps from a platform diving board that is 32 feet above the water. The position of the diver can be modeled by s(t) = -16t2+16t+32, where s is his position and t is the seconds that have gone by since he jumped. When does the diver hit the water, and what was his ...
