The length of the trailer from the hitch to the axle is 274 cm. The center of mass of the trailer body is 73.7 cm in front of the axle and it has a mass of 117 kg. If the fraction of weight supported by the hitch can be no more than 119 kg, what is the furthest in front of the axle you can position the center of mass of the engine?*arrow_forward* - 3. Two people carry a heavy electric motor by placing it on a light board 2.00 m in length. One person lifts at one end with a force of 70ON, and the other lifts the opposite end with a force of 500N. What is the weight of the motor, and where along the board is its center of gravity located? (Note: The center of gravity of an object is the point where the weight passes through.)
