1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two friends are carrying a crate of mass 200 kg up a flight of stairs. The crate has length 1.25 m and height 0.50 m, and its center of gravity is at its center. The stairs make a 45.0 angle with respect to the floor. The crate also is carried at an 45.0 angle , so that its bottom side is parallel to the slope of the stairs . The force each person applies is vertical. Find the force that each person contributes with. 3. The attempt at a solution I want to find the torque around both points. But I do not know, how the free-body diagram looks like. There's a gravity at CM, and we have the forces T_b and T_u (bottom and up). Where are T_b and T_u directed?
