1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Classify each of the following items as a rigid body, a system of rigid bodies, or a non-rigid body: a fishing pole, a diving board, a mechanical spring, a bowling ball, a baseball bat, a system of gears, a slider block system, and a construction excavator's arm
2. Relevant equations
A body is considered rigid if it does not deform when a force is applied.
3. The attempt at a solution
Here's what I think:
System of Rigid Bodies:
System of gears, slider block system, construction excavator's arm
spring, fishing pole, diving board, baseball bat
Please help me classify.
