A 172-cm-tall person lies ona light (massless) board which is supported by two scales one under the top of her head and ones beneath the bottom of her feet(figure 9-53). The two scales readrespectively 35.1 and 31.6 kg
What distance is the center of gravity of this person from the bottom of her feet?

Let mA=35.1 kg
mB=31.6 kg
L=17.2 m
Now the distance for the center of gravity is calculated as
x=mAmA+mBL=9.05 cm
