Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to figure out the crushing force of a concrete crusher. Here's a pic to help illustrate:

I have 2 questions:

1) Would the crushing force on the concrete be 2*Ft or only Ft

and

2) Would the force exerted by the cylinder on each jaw be Fc/2 or Fc as shown.

Thanks for you help!
