Problem Set # 8 Giancoli 4 th ed. 12.16. ( a ) Calculate the torques about the elbow joint (the dot in the free- body diagram). The arm is in equilibrium. Take counterclockwise torques as positive.

There will be a normal force upwards at the ball of the foot, equal to the person’s weight ( ) N . F mg = Calculate torques about a point on the floor directly below the leg bone (and so in line with the leg bone force, B F ! ). Since the foot is in equilibrium, the sum of the torques will be zero. Take counterclockwise torques as positive.
