- TL;DR Summary
- Does lifting an object from a point offset from is center of gravity incense force required to lift said object. Does torque that is countered add force required to lift a load?

Good Evening Everyone.

I am having trouble wrapping my head around the physics involved with the example below.

At first i was looking at this as if lifting may create a lever of some sort, but I don't believe it has a fulcrum.

I am trying to find a formula (if there is one) for lifting a mass from a point offset the the center of mass.

Does the force to lift a mass increase with the distance of an offset lifting point such as this in the example below?

I know the offset force will create a torque, assuming the mass is captive in a track of sorts, in this case a roller guide, would it be safe to assume the torque is cancelled out and wont add to the force required to lift this mass?

This is with the assumption that the roller create negligible friction in this example.
