 how much force would be required to lift an object that weighs 60 pounds a distance of 36 inches. Could the size of the magnets be reduced if two magnets were used? one being constantly energized the one attached to the weight, the other being and electric magnet on a pedestal sitting atop being turned on to lift the weight and hold it and then release it again.?
