Homework Help: Horizontal force on a post in a Hammock

  1. Jun 17, 2013 #1
    Your friend of mass m sits in a hammock that is suspended between two vertical posts separated by a distance d. If the hammock dips a distance h below the height l at which the hammock is secured to the posts, what is the horizontal force on each post due to your friend? Use g for the gravitational constant.
