Hi,
I just joined this forum and was wondering if anybody can answer my question.
According to the template,
1)Looking at the diagram, when the orni side goes upwards, the lead weight side will go downwards and the angle indicator will move. I was wondering how can I calculate how much force was required to move the orni up if the swinging arm is balanced in the first place? Is there a equation that will allow me to use the angles or distances to the lead weight/orni to measure how much upward force was created?
2) I do not have any equations that I know of.
3)I was thinking of using the angle to calculate the downwards distance moved by the lead weight. Then multiplying the weight of the lead weight by the distance and get the force. Am I going in the right correction?
I hope I explained my query clearly. Please help?
Regards,
Clifford
