Free-Body Diagrams 1. Sketch the forces acting on the table, your body, and the force plate while you are standing in equilibrium on the force plate (which is on the floor), pushing down on the table. Clearly label each force using the form F A on B , where “A on B” means Object A acting on Object B. In addition to Table = T, Body = B, and Force plate = P, use Earth = E and Floor = F. Two pairs of forces in these sketches make up two action-reaction pairs. Denote these pairs by changing the colors of their vectors – right-click on arrow and format shape. Use different colors for each pair. 2. Sketch the forces acting on you and the force plate while you are accelerating upwards just prior to jumping off the plate. Label them and change their colors as described in Question 1. WPI Physics Department 1 PH 1110 2014-15 Name and section number: Partner’s name and section number:

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
