Hello, I've seen a similar problem posted here but the answer to my question was not included. The details of my problem are not so important as I do not require a solution, just help in one aspect of the problem: finding the fulcrum in order to calculate torques to balance each other (in order to find the forces contributed by either side). The problem is 2 paramedics carrying a stretcher with some body of some mass with a center of gravity closer to one paramedic. I was unsure of where the fulcrum would be in order to calculate torque. I did the problem by calculating the torque for paramedic A using the fulcrum as paramedic B and vice versa, but I have no idea if this is correct. It seems odd to use 2 fulcrums in a problem, but it seems to me when I visualize the problem that the pivot point for each side is the other side. Can anyone please help me with this? Also, is there a standard rule of thumb for finding the fulcrum in problems where it is not obvious (obvious like a seesaw or wrench). THANK YOU!!!
