A 80 kg climber is standing horizontally on a perfectly vertical cliff face. The climber is 1.8 m tall and is attached by a 2 m long rope fastened around their middle to a point on the cliff above them. What is the normal force the cliff face exerts on the climber in Newtons?


Details and assumptions
The climber is not moving.
The acceleration of gravity is −9.8 m/s2.
The center of mass of the climber is at the point where the rope meets their body.
