**Steve**, Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 4:46pmThe force on the handle is multiplied by the ratio of the distance from the fulcrum.

The product of force*distance for each side is the same.

So, plug in the numbers and you will see that since the handle is 60 times as long as the tip, the force applied to the tip is 30 times as great.

F1 * .15 = 30 * 9

F1 = 30*9/.15 = 540
