- TL;DR Summary
- Looking to calculate required force output from the cylinder the lift the beam with the acting load at different positions.
I am trying to calculate the force required to lift/move the beam clockwise from the shown position. I have a force (F1) acting at the end of the beam, 5,000lbs pushing to the left, as shown. What is "Fcyl", or the force required by the cylinder to life the beam with the acting load, and rotate about the beams fixed point, point A.
