2 (d) Given the weights ( w 1 and w 2 ), determine the magnitudes of as many of the forces in your FBDs as possible. What can you say about the magnitudes of the other forces? 2. A ball of weight w rests in a wedge formed by two rigid, flat frictionless walls. ( Frictionless means the contact forces are perpendicular to the surface—i.e. there is
