The diving board shown in figure has a mass of 35kg. O = 65kg diver
[1.2m] [3.9m] O
A) Find the magnitude of the force on the support A when a 65kg diver stands at the end of the diving board.
B) Find the magnitude of the force on the support B.
T = F x d
The Attempt at a Solution
For A), do I find the center of mass of the board and multiply that by 65kg and 9.8?
For B), is it the total distance x gravity x mass of diver?
Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thank you so much!
