Main Question or Discussion Point
Hi, I am working on a project where the normal process has been to push a single linear plain away from a given area. I am now considering lifting the single linear plain away but wondered about the physical dynamics when comparing pushing to lifting something.
In the image:
A. Represents the hanging vertical linear plain.
B. Represents a rotational cap with an angled arm. A weight is about to be applied exerting downward force.
C. Represents that downward force causing a rotation at the top and causing the single linear plain to be pushed away from the vertical.
D. Represents the same vertical linear plain but with an attachment to the centre of that plain. From the top of this central point, there is a balanced arm where a weight can be applied exerting downward force.
E. Represents that downward force causing a rotation at the top and causing the single linear plain to be lifted away from the vertical.
So, my question is, are the physical dynamics of C, different from the physical dynamics of E?
