1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Where is the best place to arrange most of the logs in a wheelbarrow so that it minimizes the amount of force on the backbone of the person transporting the load? 2. Relevant equations Moment = Fd or r x F E.O.E: Sum of Fx = 0, Sum of Fy = 0, Sum of Fz = 0. Sum of Mx = 0, Sum of My = 0, Sum of Mz = 0. 3. The attempt at a solution This is basically just a force analysis problem with no weight or dimensions given. Any help would be appreciated.
