A wrench is used to attempt to turn a bolt. The bolt has a radius of 1cm and the
wrench is 30cm long.
Write out the expression that would determine the magnitude of the frictional force
necessary to keep the bolt from turning.

A 60 lb child sits on the end of an 18 foot long teeter-totter. Where should her father
(who is 180 lbs) sit to balance the teeter-totter? Draw an extended force diagram.
18 feet
A 60 lb child sits on the end of an 18 foot long teeter-totter. Her father (who is 180 lbs)
sits on the opposite side to balance the teeter-totter. If the teeter-totter weighs 20lbs,
what force does the support exert? Draw a free body diagram.

component of the force of the wall on the platform as the worker moves toward the
wall?
a) It increases.
b) It decreases.
c) It remains the same.
d) There is no horizontal component of the force of the wall on the platform.
