Problem 19P

(II) A 172-cm-tall person lies on a light (massless) board which is supported by two scales, one under the top of her head and one beneath the bottom of her feet (Fig. 9-64). The two scales read, respectively, 35.1 and 31.6 kg. What distance is the center of gravity of this person from the bottom of her feet?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution

Step 1 of 2

The person lying on the table exert forces on the table and table show reaction to the person. The readings of the scales show the reaction forces.

We will find the center of mass of the person.

the reaction force on left end of table.

the reaction force on right end of the table.

the length of the table.
