The diagram drawn below shows a lever system fixed to a point on the left with a pivot point (circle) on the line which attaches to vertical line. I have dimensions for Y and Z and the forces pulling the lever down on the right, and the force acting upwards from below. I am trying to work out the dimension for X to determine how long the lever needs to be to compress the upwards force, but I am unsure due to the varying angle as the lever is pulled down. Any help is greatly appreciated. Before lever is pulled down. After lever is pulled down. Thanks.
