# Calculate the normal force

## Homework Statement

An $D$ meter long wooden stick with a mass of $M$ is placed on two chairs of neglegible lenght. The left is $L$ meters from the left end and the right is $X$ meters from the right end. Find the expression for the both Normal forces that act from the chairs.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am guessing i should begin by noting that the lever that acts on the right, mainly the gravitational force times x is adding to the normal and the left is lowering it right?
