Calculate the effort required to lift a load of 1962N using a third order lever with load 5m distance from effot and fulcrum 1m distance from effort.
i used the following,
large distance x small effort = small distance x large effort
The Attempt at a Solution
so, 5m x small effort = 1 x 1962
effort = 1962/5
= 392.4 N
and giving an MA of 5. 1962/392.4.
Am I along the correct lines here? Any help much appreciated.
