Calculate the leverage from force or mass and length of the lever arms. The length of a lever arm is the distance from the balance point of the effective force to the point where the lever rests. The law of the lever says, that the force time the length of one arm is equal to the force time the length of the other arm. Leverage means that with a long arm on one side, a large force on the other side can be achieved.
Instead of a force, a mass can be entered, this will be converted into a force via the gravitational acceleration.
Example: the first arm has a length of 50 centimeters, 2 kilogramms are placed here. If the second arm has a length of 10 centimeters, t 98 newtons.
