Problem 2P

Henry Heavyweight weighs 1200 N and stands on a pair of bathroom scales so that one scale reads twice as much as the other. What are the scale readings?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution Step 1 of 4 Given data, Weight if the person, W= 1200 N The reading of mass in two scales, m an1 m 2 Since one scale reading twice that of the other scale m = m 1 1 m = 2m 2 1 Acceleration due to gravity, g= 9.8 m/s 2 To find, Mass reading in two scales, m =1And m = 2 Step 2 of 4 Using the equation for weight, W = mg….1 Where W is the weight of person, m is the mass and g is acceleration due to gravity. Since the person places himself on two scales, W = W +W 1 2 Using equation 1, W=m g+m g 1 2 W=g(m +m ) 1 2
