Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This comes from balance of torques. \[F_a L_1 = F_l L_2\]where \(F_a\) is the force we apply, \(F_l\) is the force lifted. As L1 increases, the applied force necessary to do the same amount of lift force decreases. This is the mechanical advantage.
