What does a lever look like?
Likewise, how does a lever work?
A lever works by reducing the amount of force needed to move an object or lift a load. You will see that levers neither increase nor decrease the amount of total effort necessary. Instead, they make the work easier by spreading out the effort over a longer distance.
Subsequently, question is, is a saw a lever? Levers are probably the most common simple machine because just about anything that has a handle on it has a lever attached. The point on which the lever moves is called the fulcrum. A good example of a lever is a see-saw.
In respect to this, what are examples of levers?
Some examples of levers include more than one class, such as a nut cracker, a stapler, nail clippers, ice tongs and tweezers. Other levers, called single class levers include the claw end of a hammer.
What is the difference between a 1st 2nd and 3rd class lever?
The difference between the three classes depends on where the force is, where the fulcrum is and where the load is. In a first class lever, the fulcrum is located between the input force and output force. In a second class lever, the output force is between the fulcrum and the input force.
