A Diver#

A \(M = \) 81.9 \(kg\) diver stands at the edge of a diving board with length \(L = \) 3.58 \(m\) and negligible mass. The diving board is supported by two narrow pillars. One pillar is located at the end of the diving board furthest from the water and the other is \(d = \) 1.22 \(m\) towards the water, as shown in the figure.

A diver stands at the right edge of a diving board of length L metres supported by two pillars A and B which are d metres apart. Pillar A touches the left end of the board.

Part 1#

Show all forces acting on the board. In addition, indicate the pivot point you will be using in the next parts.

Part 2#

Find the magnitude of the force exerted on the diving board by pillar \(B\) (\(F_B\)).

Answer Section#

Please enter in a numeric value in \(N\).

Part 3#

Find the direction, \(\theta\), of the force exerted on the diving board by pillar \(B\) (\(F_B\)). Assume that the point where Pillar \(B\) touches the board is at the origin of a Cartesian plane (\(\theta > 0\) with zero being to the right).
