A woman holds a 1.9 m long uniform 5.5 kg pole as shown in the figure .

her hands are 30 cm apart.

Determine the magnitudes of the forces she must exert with each hand.

To what position should she move her left hand so that neither hand has to exert a force greater than 110 N?

To what position should she move her left hand so that neither hand has to exert a force greater than 35 N?

    as shown in the figure...?

    I don't think you really need the figure.It's just a womand holding a pole with her hand 30 cm apart. I don't know how to get the figure on here.

    You have to have position to determine the sum of moments.

    o ok... she is holding it horizontally with her right hand at the end of the pole and her left hand 30 cm away.
