      Hello Friends,

      I need some help in calculating the force at the end of the clamping device (http://imgur.com/6aV5Fxk). I have a pneumatic cylinder of force 4.5 KN which pushes the lever and pulls back. I tried general force-momentum calculation, but I am unable to get the answer. I would apprecialte if some one helped me in this. thanks.!!

      You can just use individual component and do a Free Body Diagram to solve for the shear force by the cutter. Disregard the momentum side as I don't think this is using impact force to cut the rod.
