What was the runner's weight in Newtons? 637 N What is the maximal vertical ground reaction force when expressed in multiples of body weight (1 body weight is the weight of the runner) times greater than body weight 4) A high jumper with a body weight of 712 N exerts a force of 3000 N against the ground during takeoff. How much force does the ground on the high jumper exert? 3000 N in the opposite direction 5) A track athlete running at fast pace had an instantaneous resultant force of 2800 N acting through the heel during heel strike. If the angle of the resultant force was 120 degrees with respect to the horizontal, what were the horizontal and vertical forces acting on the heel?
