As part of your work out, you lie on your back and push with your feet against a platform attached to two stiff springs arranged side by side so that they are parallel to each other. when u push the platform, you compress the springs. You do 80.0G of work when u compress the springs 0.200m from their uncompressed length.
a) What magnitude of force must u apply to hold the platform in this position?
b) How much additional work must you do to move the platform 0.200m farther, and what maximum force must you apply?

a) The average force is 80 J0.200 m=400 N, and the forceneeded to hold the platform in place is twice this, or 800 N.
b) Doubling the distance quadruples the work so an extra 240 J of work must be done. The maximum force is quadrupled, 1600N

Hi I need help with thisquestion. A uniform metal rod, with a mass of 3.1 kg and a length of 1.2 m,is attached to a wall by a hinge at the base. A horizontalwire bolted to the wall 0.51 m above the base of the rod holds therod at an angle of 25 degrees above the horizontal. The wireis attached to the top of the rod. (a) Find the tension inthe wire. (b) Find the horizontal and verticalcomponents of the force exerted on the rod by the hinge. Thank you

The arm weighs 44.0 N. The force of gravity acting on the arm acts through point A. Determine the magnitudes of the tension force t in the deltoid muscle and the force s of the shoulder on the humerus (upper-arm bone) to hold the arm in the position shown.
t=N
s=N
