Enter the values of weight of the payload W_{(lbf)}, weight of the scissor arms WA_{(lbf)} & angle between arms a_{(degree)} and the ground to determine the value of scissor lift force F_{(lbf).}

__Scissor Lift Force Formula:__

__Scissor Lift Force Formula:__

The scissor lift force F_{(lbf)} in lbf is equal to the weight of the payload W_{(lbf)} in lbf to addition of the weight of the scissor arms WA_{(lbf)} in lbf and divided by 2times and again divided by the angle between arms and the ground a_{(degree)} in degree.

The equation of scissor lift force can be writtern as,

F_{(lbf)} = (W_{(lbf)} + ( WA_{(lbf)} / 2 ) ) / ( Tan(a_{(degree)} )

Here,

F_{(lbf)} = scissor lift force in lbf

W_{(lbf)} = weight of the payload in lbf

WA_{(lbf)} = weight of the scissor arms in lbf

a_{(degree)} = angle between arms and the ground in degree

__Scissor Lift Force Calculation:__

1)To find scissor lift force and weight of the payload 45lbf and weight of the scissor arms 45lbf and angle between arms and the ground 25degree.

Answer

F = ( W + ( WA / 2 ) ) / ( Tan(a) )

F = ( 45 + ( 45 / 2 ) ) / ( Tan (25) )

F = -123.50 lbf.

2)To find weight of the scissor arms and scissor lift force 123.50 lbf and weight of the payload 45lbf and angle between arms and the ground 25degree.

Answer

F = ( W + ( WA / 2 ) ) / ( Tan(a) )

123.50 = ( 45 + ( WA / 2 ) ) / ( Tan (25) )

WA = 45lbf.
