A proximity laser sensor PLS is the guard device for a robot work cell. The
jointed arm robot has a maximum work envelope, including the gripper of 9.5 feet,
and the response time of the robot system
Calculate the force Fc in thre figure when the force Fa is 50 pounds. The lever
arm between Fa and the pivot point is 1 inch, and the force on the part acts at a vertical
distance of 2 inches from the pivot point.
