Unformatted text preview: b) He is holding it with his hands clamped together beneath it and it is also supported horizontally by his body. (His hands are again straight) c) Compare the results and discuss. All parameters should be estimated based on an average workers body and there is no unique answer. Use descriptive figures and clearly state your assumptions. Note that this is a 2D problem. There is no friction between the concrete surface and the workers hands. Concrete density is 2400 kg/m 3...
