A class two lever has the force and weight on the same side of the lever, with the force farthest from the lever.

Example:

   Force   Weight
    \/      \/
  _______________________
 (_______________________)
                    /^\

                   Pivot

Class two levers are used to gain a force advantage. An example would be a wheelbarrow.
