Problem 17E

Why can you exert greater force on the pedals of a bicycle if you pull up on the handlebars?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

When you pull up on the handlebars,the handlebars push downward on you with an equal and opposite force.this force is transmitted through you downward to the pedals,in addition to the force you exert on the pedals with your legs.this is the good example of newton’s third law. Or According to newton’s third law without pulling on the handlebars,the downward force on the pedals is due to your body weight only.but if you pull up on the handlebars,the handlebars exert a downward force on you.this force get transmitted to the pedals,which acts on pedal in addition to the force of gravity.
