(a) Free-body diagram for the barbell: Free-body diagram for the athlete: Forces shown: B on A F r : contact force due to athletes hands acting on barbell. B on E W r : gravitational force due to Earth acting on barbell (weight). A on G N r : normal force due to ground acting on athletes feet. y + A on E W r : gravitational force due to Earth acting on athlete (weight). A on B F r : contact force due to barbell acting on athletes hands. (b) We want to find the force that the athletes feet exert on the ground, G on A N r , as he lifts the barbell. This force is the Newtons third-law interaction partner of A on G N r , so A on G G on A N N r r ! = . Thus, we need to find the magnitude of A on G N r . Newtons 2 nd law applied to the athlete yields , A A A on B A on E A on G , A on B , A on E , A on G = = ! ! = + + y y y y a m F W N F W N , because the athlete is not accelerating....
