# Calculating torque, force and angles

## Homework Statement

A lever is used to lift a box, ignore the mass. the lever makes a 43° angle at the pivot, point A, the length of the lever is 1,8 m, Force P is apply 15° at the end of the lever
Force P causes a moment of 500N.m about point A. Determine the force P?

T=rFsinθ

T=rFsinθ
F=T/rsinθ
F=500/1.8sin15
F=1073N
