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

Imagine you have an object where the weight is equally divided. What would be the formula to calculate the force needed to lift the object up to a distance without lifting it up completely. For example, a push-up, your feet keep touching the ground but you push your self up. How would one calculate that? If the mass, length, height and standard gravity are known?

Thanks in advance
