State Supt. Stetson of Maine - ,

feature will he thc -
Thc physics classes of thc
county have been asked to send
in solutions of thc following
problem : A plank 12 feet long ,
and weighing 24 lbs is supported
by 2 props , one 3 feet from one
end and the other 1 foot from thc
other citd. What is thc pressure
on each prop ?
Thc following solution is given
by .1. F. Helf 'of thc Salem high
school ; Let A B be thc board ,
C and D thc props. AC equals 3.
BD equals 1. Let P bc thc center -
tel' of thc board which is also thc
center of gravity of thc boa'rd.
Then thc entire weight is concentrated -
ccntratcd at P. CP equals 3. PD
equals S. Let 'V equal thc pressure -
sure at C.2e.t'V equals pressure
at D. Then S'V equals 120.V .
equals 15 Ib and 24-'V cquals )
The following solution is by
Harry Gardner of the Falls City
high school :
Given AB , a plank , 12 ft long ,
weighing : 24 Ibs , supportcd by C
D , C being 3 ft from A and D be-
ing 1 ft from B. eo rind pressure -
sure on C and on D respect \'cly.
Let E he pain 2 ft from A.
It is evident that if we consider
EB as separate from AE that its
weight , tcn-twclfths x24 is equally -
ly supported by C and D , each
sustaining 101bs. rl'hen regard-
ing C as a fulcrum , apply .A.B.
It is evident that. thc pressure
at D varies with the difference in
downward pressure existing between -
tween - thc two arms pf thc lever
taking C as a fulcrum.
Without AE the. .1itTcrel1 is
as - - -
CB weighs lS 1 bs wi than average
leverage of 4 , 1-2 f1. CE weighs
2 lbs with an average leverage of
11-2 ft. (1Sx41-2)-(2x1-2) ( ( )
equals Sl-1 or 80.
With Al the ditTercnce is as
CB weighs 18 lbs with an a\"cr-
agq of 4 1-2 ft. CA weighs 6 , lbs
with an average leverage of 4 1-2
ft. (18 ( x 4 1-2) ) - (6 ( x 1 1-2) )
equals 81- equals 72.
'rhcr-.forc tIs evident that by
thc application . of AE the ( down
, ward pressure of CB and com e-
quently thc pressure at D is reduced -
duccd eight-eightieths or onc-
L"'hcrcfore the pressure at D
equals 10 lbs - ( onc-tcnth x 10) )
The pressure Lt , C equals 24 lbs 1
- < ) lbs equals 15 lbs.
