Physics

A diver of weight 730 N stands at the end of a diving board of length L = 5 m and negligible mass. The board is fixed to two pedestals separated by distance d = 1.5 m.

What are the magnitude and direction of the force on the board from the left pedestal? (Include the sign. Take upward to be positive.)

What are the magnitude and direction of the force on the board from the right pedestal? (Include the sign. Take upward to be positive.)

  1. You have to sum forces in the vertical direction and set to zero.
    Then, you have to sum moments about any point and set to zero.
