Same force

The trunk of 5m in length and 95 kilograms has a center of gravity of 2m from the thicker end. The tribe is carried by two men, one at the thicker end. At what distance does the trunk carry a man from the other end to make the same force on it?

Correct answer:

x =  1 m

Step-by-step explanation:

l=5 m m=95 kg y=2 m  Σ M = 0  F1   y = F2   (lyx) F1 = F2  y = lyx  x=l2 y=52 2=1 m
