Hey guys, question:

Sally is standing on a diving board. Her weight is 50 kg. The diving board is fastened to a bracket with bolts A and B, and the bracket is fastened to the ground with bolts C and D.

Estimate the force of the bolts that are in tension (A and C) when sally is standing still..

Help please?

Hi, Rudeted,

Your problem statement is incomplete because you dont indicate any dimensions, like the length of the diving board and the bolt spacings. Please show what they are, AND also you must show some attempt at your work before we can be of further assistance.
