GLE 0707.11.1 Identify six types of simple machines. Machine a tool that helps us do work Machines help us by: 1. Changing the amount of force on an object. 2. Changing the direction of the force. A simple machine is a machine with few or no moving parts

Force is a push or pull that changes the motion or shape of an object. Example: I push a bookshelf to move it. Simple machines have few or no moving parts

Lever Inclined Plane Wedge Screw Wheel and Axel Pulley

Lever made of a board or bar set on top of a fulcrum. It is used to lift weight. Levers are used to apply a force to a load. There are three classes of levers, which are based on the placements of the fulcrum, the load, and the input . force

Example: seesaw, crowbar, baseball rake bat, First Class Lever- a first-class lever, the fulcrum is between the input force and the load . Common

examples of firstclass levers include crowbars, scissors, pliers, tin snips and seesaws. Second Class Lever-The load of a second-class lever is between the fulcrum and the input force Examples of

second-class levers include nut crackers, wheel barrows, doors, and bottle openers. Third Class Lever-The input force in a thirdclass lever is between the fulcrum and the load. Examples of third-class

levers include tweezers, arm hammers, and shovels. Inclined Plan a slanted surface to make lifting easier Example: ramp, stairs

Wedge two inclined planes together used to raise an object or split an object. Example: knife, door wedge, ax Screw an inclined plane wrapped around a pole or shaft that is used to hold materials together or drill holes. Example: drill bit, screws

Wheel and Axel a wheel that turns on a post to help move things quickly and easily Example: steering wheel, doorknob, screwdriver Pulley made of rope and string wound around a reel to change the direction of a force. Example : flagpole, clothesline, cranes, fishing reel

Compound Machine two or more simple machines working together. Examples: Bike Car After Video Questions 1. A machine is a device that does one or more of the following three things: makes work

easier, makes work faster, or ___________. a. uses a force b. is a push or pull c. changes the direction of the effort d. includes one of the simple machines 2. A compound machine is ___________. a. made up of two or more simple machines b. a tool that uses a force to move an object

c. made up of a wedge and lever d. very expensive 3. What are the six simple machines? 4. What simple machines are found in a wheelbarrow? a. lever and inclined plane b. wedge and wheel and axle c. lever and wheel and axle d. inclined plane and wedge

5. What simple machines are found in a pencil sharpener? a. lever and inclined plane b. wedge and wheel and axle c. lever and wheel and axle d. inclined plane and wedge Science Closure 9-8-14 A logger splits a piece of wood. What simple machine splits the wood?

A wedge B wheel and axle C pulley D lever
