What is a load in a lever?
Just so, what is load in simple machine?
A lever simple machine consists of a load, a fulcrum and effort (or force). The load is the object that is moved or lifted. The fulcrum is the pivot point, and the effort is the force required to lift or move the load. Inclined planes make it easier to lift something. Think of a ramp.
Similarly, how do you describe a lever? A lever can be described as a long rigid body with a fulcrum along its length. Load : The object you're lifting. Fulcrum : Point at which the lever pivots. Effort: The force applied to make the object move.
Also asked, what is a effort in a lever?
A lever is a simple machine that consists of a rigid bar supported at one point, known as the fulcrum. A force called the effort force is applied at one point on the lever in order to move an object, known as the resistance force, located at some other point on the lever.
What are 3 examples of a lever?
The class of lever depends on the location of the load, force, and fulcrum. 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.
