This is a lill awkward question but I need to know. A car has the mass 1400kg. What force will be distributed on each tire/tyre?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

G is the mass center and d1 = 1386mm, d2 = 964mm. First of all, it (the paper) says T1 = 2820N and T2 = 4050N. But 4050+2820 = 6870 != mg = 13734. How could this be and how would I calculate T1 and T2? My logic (and I guess my best, of many, shots)told me that maybe d1/d2 = T2/T1. We also know that T1+T2=mg. So I used this and got T1 = 2418N and T2 = 11315N. Not quite correct.Code (Text):________________
