    motion analysis not returning expected torque value with known force

    Marcus Merideth

      pushing striker into ratchet and holding ratchet in place with motor.  plotting motor torque vs time.  striker force 30 N. Normal distance from striker to ratchet pivot  16.76 mm.  Was expecting 502.8 N-mm of torque at ratchet pivot but am getting 1156.85 N-mm.  A little confused.  No redundancies.  using hinge mate to hold ratchet in place.  striker constrained from motion and rotation with motors except for desired direction.  Ideas?
