1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A forklift truck of weight W has dimensions shown in the figure below. Its centre of gravity G is mid-way between the front and the rear axles. When a uniform block of weight w (w < W) is placed on the front forks as shown, how the load on the rear axle will change? 2. Relevant equations Will the truck's center of gravity G change? 3. The attempt at a solution I tried to use M = F.d, but I don't know which items are constant, and which ones change. Please help. Thanks in advance.
