A 5.00 m long rigid beam with a mass of 100.0 kg is supported at each end. An 80.0 kg worker stands on the beam, 4.00 m from the left support. 30.0 kg of brick are stacked on the beam 1.50 m from the left end of the beam. How much upward force does each support exert on the beam? Be specific by left support and right support?
