The Fulcrum Position calculator computes the distance (x) from the object to the fulcrum based on the length of the beam (L), the mass of the object (W) and the downward force (F).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your preferred units and enter the following:
Fulcrum Position (x): The calculator returns the length in meters. However this can be automatically converted to other length units via the pull-down menu.
A lever is a simple machine where the ratio of the product of the lengths and forces on opposite sides of a fulcrum are equal as is represented in the following equation:
