 Homework Statement:
 Find the minimum force for the motor
 Relevant Equations:

(sum) Fx=0;
(sum) Fy=0;
(sum) Mo=0;
Hi all,
I have the following situation:
I need to determine the minimum force needed for a motor to move the load (75 N) at the end of the beam. I added the forces in a FBD and did the sum of forces and moment calculations (see below). Is this calculation correct and what would be the next step for choosing the right motor? Searching through the internet I found a linear actuator (Linear actuator) with a 500 N capacity, is this the common way to handle a practical question ?
