A person is holding a weight (100 N) in their hand. The weight is a distance of 0.3 meters from the center of rotation of the elbow. 1. If the forearm is parallel to the ground, what is the torque about the elbow due to the weight? Telbow = F * R = 100 N * 0.3 meters = 30 Nm 2. If the forearm has an angle of 30° above the horizontal (hand is higher than elbow), what is the torque about the elbow due to the weight? Telbow = F * R R = 0.3cos 30° = 0.26 meters Telbow = 100 N * 0.26 m = 26 Nm 3. If an elbow flexor muscle has a moment arm of m about the elbow, what force must it generate to hold the forearm at an angle of 50° above the horizontal with the weight in the hand (ignoring the weight of the forearm)? SMelbow = 0: FwRw – FmRm = 0 where Fm & Rm are the muscle force and its moment arm respectively, and Fw & Rw are the 100N weight and its moment arm respectively.

A person is wearing a weight boot (150N) and doing exercises to strengthen the knee extensor muscles. The center of mass of the weight boot is 0.35 meters from the center of rotation of the knee. The person's foot + shank has a weight of 40N and its center of mass is 0.2 meters from the center of rotation of the knee. These distances are along the length of the shank. When the shank is perpendicular to the ground, what is the total torque about the knee? (Be sure to use a free-body diagram.)

When the shank is perpendicular to the ground, what is the total torque about the knee? (Be sure to use a free-body diagram.) All of the moment arms are zero because the force vectors go directly through the center of rotation of the knee. As a result, the total torque is 0. 2. When the shank is held at a position where it is 20° below the horizontal (foot is lower than knee), what is the torque about the knee? (Be sure to use a free-body diagram. Note that the moment arm of the weight boot about the knee changes with knee angle.) T = - (T due to shank weight + T due to weight boot) = -[(40)(0.2 cos 20)] + [(150)(0.35 cos 20)] = N • m 3.
