Problem: A gymnast has just landed on a trampoline. She's still moving downward as the trampoline stretches. Draw a free-body diagram for the gymnast. Draw the force vectors with their tails at the dot. The orientation of your vectors will be graded. The exact length of your vectors will not be graded but the relative length of one to the other will be graded.
