1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 62.5kg painter stands 1.35m from one end of a 45.0 kg scaffold that is 4.50m long. She has 11.0kg supply of paint 1.00m from the end she is nearest to. Find the reaction forces at the supports if the scaffold is supported at each end. 2. Relevant equations F=ma N1+N2-w(mg)=0 3. The attempt at a solution Well I know that sum of forces equal to zero and the newton's second law formula F=ma. So I thought of calculating all the weights to get force (N) and then I got stuck. Please help me on this.
