## Homework Statement

A diver of weight 582 N stands at the end of a uniform 4.48-m diving board of weight 142N The board is attached by two pedestals 1.55 m apart. Find the tension in each of the two pedestals.

## Homework Equations

Torque= force x distance

Torque = Rotational Interia x angular acceleration or I=mr^2

Friction= usN

## The Attempt at a Solution

So far I just draw a body diagram. I got no x-component based on the fact there no force and for vertical component is gravity facing down. I don't know what else to include, plus how can I find a torque.

Help me if you can, thanks.
