Magnitude of the Vertical Force

Spread the love

A 57 kg diver stands at the end of a 29 kg springboard, as shown in the figure. The board is attached to a hinge at the left end but simply rests on the right support.

What is the magnitude of the vertical force exerted by the hinge on the board?


Known Variables:

(diver)m1 = 57 kg

(springboard)m2= 29 kg

l= 3.0

Calculate the force that the right exerts.

We need to find the weight:

= m g

= 57 * 9.8

= 558.6 N

The vertical force that is exerted would be the weight of the person

F  = 558.6 N

or rounded would be

F=560N
