F
h
= (“slope”)
x
+
(“yintercept”),
where the “slope” is
mg/h
and the “yintercept” is
MgD
/2
h
. Since
h
= 0.480 m and
D
=
4.00 m, and the graph seems to intercept the vertical axis at 20 kN, then we find
M
= 500
kg.
(b) Since the “slope” (estimated from the graph) is
(5000 N)/(4 m), then the man’s mass
must be
m
= 62.5 kg.
