1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The drawing shows a person (weight W = 581 N, L1 = 0.829 m, L2 = 0.399 m) doing push-ups. Find the normal force exerted by the floor on each hand and each foot, assuming that the person holds this position. http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/3044/p911zz6.gif [Broken] 2. Relevant equations I know this has something to do with net torque. Wd=wd 3. The attempt at a solution Ok i tried figuring this out in sveral ways. first, i tried multiplying L1 with 581, the persons weight, and then i divided by 2. This did not work. so tried multplying times l1+l2 and that did not work either. What am I doing wrong? i was sure i had it right the first time around.
