Problem P. 4119. (December 2008)
P. 4119. The weighing scale with which the mass of animals can be measured is a cage which has pressure sensors below its four vertices on its bottom. These sensors continuously transmit the measured data to a computer. From the measured data can the computer calculate the mass of the moving animal in the cage? Is it possible to find the mass if the animal is leaping during the measurement?
