Problem 17E

You take your dog Clea to the vet, and the doctor decides he must locate the little beast’s center of gravity. It would be awkward to hang the pooch from the ceiling, so the vet must devise another method. He places Clea’s from feet on one scale and her hind feet on another. The front scale reads 157 N, while the rear scale reads 89 N. The vet next measures Clea and finds that her rear feet are 0.95 m behind her front feet. How much does Clea weigh and where is her center of gravity?
