A person exerts a horizontal force of 190 N in the test apparatusshown in the figure. Find the horizontal force that his flexor muscle exerts on his forearm.
net torque about the pivot = 0
\(\displaystyle{190}\cdot{0.34}-{F}\cdot{0.054}={0}\)
\(\displaystyle{F}={1196}{N}\)
0

When a person stands on tiptoe (a strenuous position), the position of the foot is as shown in Figure (a). The total gravitational force on the body, vector F g, is supported by the force vector n exerted by the floor on the toes of one foot. A mechanical model of the situation is shown in Figure (b), where vector T is the force exerted by the Achilles tendon on the foot and vector R is the force exerted by the tibia on the foot. Find the values of vector T , vector R , and θ when vector F g = 805 N. (Do not assume that vector R is parallel to vector T .)

A person bending forward to lift a load "with his back" rather than"with his knees" can be injured by large forces exerted on themuscles and vertebrae. A person is bending over to lift a200-N object. The spine and upper body are represented as auniform horizontal rod of weight 350 N, pivoted at the base of thespine. The erector spinalis muscle, attached at a pointtwo-thirds of the way up the spine, maintains the position of theback. The angle between the spine and this muscle is 12degrees. Find the tension in the back muscle and thecompressional force in the spine.

Two snowcats tow a housing unit to a new location at McMurdo Base, Antarctica, as shown in the figure. The sum of the forces \(\displaystyle{F}_{{A}}\) and \(\displaystyle{F}_{{B}}\) exerted on the unit by the horizontal cables is parallel to the line L, and \(\displaystyle{F}_{{A}}={4200}\) N. Determine \(\displaystyle{F}_{{B}}\)? Determine the magnitude of \(\displaystyle{F}_{{A}}+{F}_{{B}}\)?
