## Homework Statement

A physics teacher (mass 80.0 kg) stands at the end of his 2.0 m long diving board. The distortion of the free end is 22.5 cm. when his noisy neighbor comes over and stands at the end he distorts it by 32.0 cm. what is the mass of the noisy neighbor?

Mass of teacher = 80.0 kg

Force = 780N

L = 2.0m

Distortion of Teacher = 22.5cm

Distortion of neighbour = 32.0cm

Mass of Neighbour = ?

## Homework Equations

Cannot figure out equation.

## The Attempt at a Solution

22.5cm / 80.0 kg = 0.28125 cm/kg

Diving board can handle 0.28125 cm/kg

So if neighbour distorts 32.0 cm

32.0cm / 0.28125cm/kg = 113.777777kg

Our teacher never gave us any equations or sample problems to go off of, so I'm just winging it, Please help!
