What is the relationship between force and simple machines?

Simple machines are tools that help multiply or change the direction of a force.

Give three examples of simple machines and explain how they work.

Examples of simple machines include the lever, pulley, and inclined plane. A lever works by using a bar that pivots on a fulcrum to multiply or change the direction of a force. A pulley uses a wheel and rope to lift or move objects. An inclined plane is a sloping surface that allows objects to be moved up or down with less force.

How do simple machines make work easier?

Simple machines reduce the amount of force required to do work by increasing the distance over which the force is applied.

What are the six classical simple machines defined by Renaissance scientists?

Lever, Wheel and axle, Pulley, Inclined plane, Wedge, Screw

What is mechanical advantage in the context of simple machines?

The ratio of the output to the applied force

How does a simple machine increase the output force?

At the cost of a proportional decrease in the distance moved by the load

How are simple machines related to compound machines?

Simple machines are the elementary 'building blocks' that compose more complicated machines

Give three examples of simple machines.

Lever, Wheel and axle, Pulley
