Ok, it's a two part question, i did the first part with no problem, which is how much force it takes to hold an object on the other end up, knowing the diameters and the mass of the object, i just used F1/A1 = F2/A2. Now, the 2nd part asks how much force is needed to support the object at a certain height. I have no idea how to put height into it. Anyone know? thanks in advance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Tell me if u need me to post the exact problem
