Sketch the forces acting on your body and the force plate while you stand in equilibrium on it. You may copy, paste, and modify the examples below. Clearly label each force using the form F A on B , where “A on B” means Object A acting on Object B. In addition to Body = B and Force plate = P, use Earth = E and Floor = F. One pair of forces in these sketches is an action-reaction pair. Denote this pair by changing the color of the vectors to medium gray. 2. Sketch the forces acting on the table, your body, and the force plate while you stand in equilibrium on the force plate pushing down on the table. Label them as described in Question 1, also using Table = T.
