A female gymnast weighs 200 N. If she is hanging stationary from a high bar,how many forces are acting on her?
A. one
B.five
C.four
D.two
E.three

WOuld it be choice A or D?

  • physics -

    gravity down
    tension on arms from bar up
    2
    net of zero therefore does not accelerate
    a body with only one force acting on it must accelerate
