Force on wheels

Workers have loaded a delivery truck in such a way that its center of gravity is only slightly forward of the rear axle. The distance from the rear wheels to the center of gravity is \( 0.63 \text{ m.} \) The distance from the front wheels to the center of gravity is \( 2.30 \text{ m.} \) The mass of the truck and its contents is \( 7765 \text{ kg.} \) Find the magnitudes of the forces exerted by the ground on the rear wheels.

Gravitational acceleration is \( g = 9.8 \text{ m/s}^2 .\)
