y x z 60 cm COM Z2=100 cm Z1=50 cm z y R2 W R1 Let R1 be reaction at hand; R2 be reaction at leg. Using force equilibrium equations in Y-Z plane Fy = 0 ; no forces in z-directions 2R2 + R1 = W M about X-axis at hand = 0 Z1 W – (Z1+Z2) 2 R2 = 0 50 x 700 – 150 x 2 R2 = 0 R2 = 35,000 / 300 = 116.67 N R1 = 700 – 2 x 116.67 = 466.67 N a) With the hand placed in this position determine all ground reactions for the hand and the two feet (YZ plane)

b) If the maximum z-directed moment the hand can support without the bodybuilder falling over is 315 Nm what is the maximum distance in the x-direction from the center of mass the hand can be placed? (XY plane) R2 R2 60 cm R1 Hand Legs Xm R1 reaction at hand at Xm from COM in XY plane R2 is reaction at leg. Let Mg =315 Nm = 31,500 Ncm Using force equilibrium equations in Y-Z plane Fy = 0 ; no forces in z-directions 2R2 + R1 = W M about Z-axis at hand = 0 Mg – (Xm * W) + (Xm+ 30) R2 + (Xm – 30) R2= 0 31,500 – (700Xm) + 2* 116.67 Xm = 0 Xm = 31,500 / 466.67 = 67.5 cm X y

### 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.
