The center of mass of the gymnasts depends on the "shape" the are making. By spreading her legs out like that, she lower's her center of mass closer to the other girls leg, which in turn, reduces the torque the she has to compensate for. Answering out of order here.. Yes, when the top person...

3. ### Painfull physics

You would use Momentum. FΔt=mv. Where t is the time you were in contact with the car mass is YOUR mass and v is your veloctiy. Doing this we could get a rough estimate by making some assumptions and simplifications, and we wouldn't care about the motion or mass of the car, just the result of...
