while moving out of her dorm room bridget carries a 12kg box to her car, holding in both arms. how much force must be exertrd by each of her arms to supprt the box b) how will this force change if bridget holds the box with only one arm.?

• physics -

The weight of the box is mass*g, or 12*9.8 Newtons.
