## Study Notes

### Machine Types

• A machine that does not provide energy by itself or transform energy from one form to another is a mechanical device.

### Mechanical Advantage of a Lever

• The mechanical advantage of a lever is the ratio of the output force to the input force, which allows for a gain in force or distance.

### Complex Machines

• An example of a complex machine is a bicycle, which combines multiple simple machines to achieve a specific task.

### Function of Machines

• Machines make our work easier and faster by applying force, changing direction, or gaining distance.

### Computer and Telephone Classification

• Computers and telephones are examples of machines that use electrical energy to perform specific tasks.

### Function of Simple Machines

• The function of a simple machine is to change the direction or magnitude of a force, making it easier to perform a task.

### External Force

• The term "effort" refers to the external force applied to a machine, which is used to achieve a specific task.

### Fulcrum Function

• The function of a fulcrum in a machine is to provide a pivot point, allowing the force to be applied at a specific point.

### Velocity Ratio

• The Velocity Ratio (VR) represents the ratio of the output velocity to the input velocity in the study of simple machines.

• Mechanical Advantage (MA) measures the ratio of the output force to the input force in a machine, which determines its efficiency.

Test your knowledge about machines and their role in making work easier and faster. Learn about simple machines, types of levers, and the mechanical advantage of a lever through this quiz.
