Mechanical Leverage Functions
(y) Beam Length:
computes the required length of a beam above the fulcrum for a lever to raise a weight
(
W
) based on the downward weight applied (
F
) and the length below the fulcrum (
x
).
(W) Lift Weight:
computes the weight that can be lifted with a lever based on the length of the beam
(
y
) above the fulcrum, the length (
x
) below the fulcrum and downward weight applied (
F
).
(x) Fulcrum Position
:
computes the length from the object to the fulcrum
needed in a lever to lift a weight (
W
) with a downward force (
F
) with a beam of length (
L
), where L = x + y (see below).
(F) Downward Force or Weight:
computes the mass needed to create the downward force (F) to raise the object with a lever.
L = x+y
:
computes the sum of two lengths
