Misako is about to do a push-up. Her center of gravity lies directly above a point on the floor which is d1 = 0.96 m from her feet and d2 = 0.71 m from her hands. If her mass is 50.0 kg, what is the force exerted by the floor on her hands?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F(feet)+F(head)=F(center of gravity0) becuase she is not moving

so what i was trying to do is to calculate the torque about the center of mass

so if she is not moving then T(feet)=T(head) and that would be

Ff(.96)=Fh(.71)

so where do i go from here ?
