How far out on a diving board (Fig.12-52 of your text) would a 56-kg diver have to be to exert a torque of 1000 m.N on the board, relative to the left support post?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1000 m*N= (56 kg)(9.8 m/s2)x

1000 m*N=548.8x

x=1.82 m

He would have to walk out 1.82 m on the board.

Is this done correctly?
