Enter the effort distance (m), the effort force (N), and the lever force (N) into the Lever Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Lever Distance.

## Lever Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Lever Distance.

Dlever = ED * EF/LF

- Where Dlever is the Lever Distance (m)
- ED is the effort distance (m)
- EF is the effort force (N)
- LF is the lever force (N)

To calculate the lever distance, multiply the effort distance by the ratio of the effort force to the lever force.

## How to Calculate Lever Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Lever Distance.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the effort distance (m).
- The effort distance (m) is calculated to be : 40.

- Next, determine the effort force (N).
- The effort force (N) is measured to be: 30.

- Next, determine the lever force (N).
- The lever force (N) is found to be: 100.

- Finally, calculate the Lever Distance using the formula above:

Dlever = ED * EF/LF

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Dlever = 40 * 30/100 = 12 (m)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

effort distance (m) = 60

effort force (N) = 70

lever force (N) = 90

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.
