Homework Help: Dynamics Problem

  1. Oct 5, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The blanket toss is a centuries-old hunting technique that the Inuit used to find herds of caribou. During the toss, several people would hold a hide taut while the hunter would jump up and down, much like on a trampoline. At the top of the jump, the hunter would rotate 360 degrees looking for the herd. Draw a free-body diagram for a hunter of weight 700 N [down] while at the maximum jump height.

    2. Relevant equations
    I don't think an equation is necessary for this question.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    This is what I think is the answer.
