1. Hmm, I need to draw a Free Body Diagram for the picture posted below.



2. No relevant equations. Just a geometric diagram.



3. I've done what I think it could be using help from Wikipedia.

Could someone tell me if its right? Am I missing any other forces? The original object is a drainpipe held in the tines of a fork lift.

Thanks!

You have drawn only one normal force. Also, without the ring, the diagram is confusing, especially because we need to see the points where the ring is touching the two surfaces. Theta is not shown explicitly in the diagram. And what's the rectangle?

Freebody doesn't strictly imply nobody...
