Problem 36E

As you stand on a floor, does the floor exert an upward force against your feet? How much force does it exert? Why are you not moved upward by this force?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Yes . Feet and floor are contact each other so the force exerted by floor on the feet is called normal force acting towards upward and the same amount of force is acting towards downward is called weight of our body . both are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction this is a reason we not moved upward by upward force.
