1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If the mechanical advantage of a lever is, lets say, 10; the forces pushing down on the effort arm equate to 100kg and the forces pushing down on the load arm equate to 1000kg and the lever itself is 5 meters, how do we go about finding the individual arm lengths (i.e. the length of the effort/lever arm). 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Here's what I'm thinking. MA = 10 Simultaneously, MA = Effort Arm / Load Arm 10 = Effort Arm / Load Arm Load Arm * 10 = Effort Arm Load Arm + Load Arm * 10 = Effort Arm + Load Arm 2Load Arm * 10 = 5 2Load Arm = 5/10 Load Arm = 0.5 True or false?
