I have another question maybe someone can help me with. I have attached a drawing of a beam (tube) that is 42" long and weighs 50 lbs. The beam pivots at one end (red dot). If the beam weighs 50 lbs how much force is required to lift the beam to a vertical position if I apply force at a 45 degree angle, 12 inches from the pivot point? If anyone has a formula I would appreciate it as I would like to play around with the angle and distance of applied force. Thanks again!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
