let's say a 180 lbs person needs to move a 2000 lbs object 50 feet. that would take 100,000 ft/lbs. how do you apply that in terms of how much effort it would take from a 180lbs man? divide by 180 and get 555.5? how do you determine the amount of force required to get this object rolling? this doesn't have to be exact, so friction etc doesn't have to be taken into account for my purposes....(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
