Hello my name is Scott ,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was trying to post a question , but after joining the physics forum - I think this site is for posting questions not finding answers until after posting it , so here we go.

Maybe someone can answer this , at work I have a bet ( lunch ) on principles of leverage when applied from a hydraulic cylinder .

I am going to try and attach a sketch and all I am looking for is the formulas to calculate the forces produced at point A and C .

We both agree on how to calculate cylinder force in extend or retract,but all the formulas that we have looked at do not show how to calculate the force at C on figure 3 using the length between B and C or at point A figs 1,2,4,5

Our disagreement is which one produces more force and which one reduces the force.

I say the fulcrum (moving fulcrum)point is C he says no it is B ((fixed fulcrum)point
