(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two people are holding up the ends of a 4.55-kg wooden board that is l = 1.90 m long. A m = 5.00-kg box sits on the board, 0.50 m from one end, as shown below. What forces do the two people exert?

2. Relevant equations

T=F*d

3. The attempt at a solution

4.55*9.8=44.59N

5*9.8=49N

49N+44.59N=93.59N=Total Force

Length(left)=1.4m Length(right)=.5m

I am unsure how do you calculate the force each person exerts, or if I am missing an equation
