## Homework Statement

A lever with one end on a pivot point, a point mass on the lever's shaft with a certain arm length (d), it is also the only relevant mass body (m). A torque (Tau

_{app.}) is applied to the lever, an angular acceleration (alpha) transpired. Find the relationship between the force received by the point mass and the other variables.

## Homework Equations

alpha = Tau / mass (...)

F

_{received}= -F

_{point on shaft}(as the shaft moves, a force is conferred on the point mass, the point mass in return exerts a force on the shaft in the opposite direction)

## The Attempt at a Solution

ΣTau = m*alpha

Tau

_{app.}- Tau

_{resistance}= m*alpha

Tau

_{app.}- F

_{point on shaft}*d= m*alpha

F

_{received}= (mass*alpha-Tau

_{app.})/d
