1. Answer: 112.5N

Explanation: Given that the

Load L = 600N

Distance moved by load = 20cm

Since the lever is one metre, the distance moved by the effort will be

100 cm – 20cm = 80 cm

Efficiency = 75%

Efficiency of a machine is the ratio of the effort multiply by distance covered by the effort to the load multiply by the distance covered by the load as percentage.

75/100 = (effort × 0.8)/ ( 600 × 0.2)

Cross multiply

80 effort = 9000

Effort = 9000/80

Effort = 112.5 N

Therefore,  the amount of effort required to lift up the load is 112.5N
