In operating a water pump, a resistance of 480 N  is overcome by an effort of 72 N. IF THE DISTANCE OF THE FULCRUM FROM THE POINT WHERE THE RESISTANCE acts is 0.2 m, find the distance from the fulcrum where the effort is applied ?

Answer:

Hi,

Effort × Distance of effort from the fulcrum =  load × Distance of load from the fulcrum

72 N D = 480N × 0.25 mD

D = (480 × 0.2) / 72 ND = 1.67 m
