If we have a uniform diving board, with a length 5.0 m and mass 54 kg, is supported at two points; one support is located 3.4 m from the end of the board and the second is at 4.6 m from the end (see the figure attached). What are the forces acting on the board due to the two supports when a diver of mass 65 kg stands at the end of the board over the water? Assume that these forces are vertical. [Hint: In this problem, consider using two different torque equations about different rotation axes. This may help you determine the directions of the two forces.]
Left support =_______kN downward
Right support =_______kN upward
