A Visual Presentation
on Simple Machines BY Paige Johnson Pulleys Lever Inclined Plane Wheel and Axle Screw Wedges A Diagram... A pulley is:
a simple machine that basically has
a wheel with a grooved rim where a
pulled chain, rope, or wire can run to change the direction of the pull and thus be able to lift a load. A first class lever is: a lever which has a fulcrum between the load/weight and the applied force. (MA cn be 1 or more than 1)

A second class lever is: a lever which has the load/weight between the fulcrum and the applied force (MA is more than 1)

A third class lever is: a lever which has the applied force in between the fulcrum and the load/weight (MA is less than 1) An inclined plane is: a supporting, flat surface that is tilted at an angle so that it can help in moving a load. A wedge is: a combination of two inclined planes and is primarily used to hold objects in place, split objects or hold up objects. A wheel and axle is: a simple machine that has an axle with a wheel attached to it so that when a twisting force that tends to cause rotation is applied, the rope or chain is wound onto the axle A screw is: a simple machine with the ability to change rotational force into linear force and rotational motion into linear motion and basically is an inclined plane wrapped around a metal rod. www.wallpaperpimper.com Pulley Diagram...

Screws can be incrementally driven, allowing the energy required to drive the screw to be spread out over time rather than all at once. This can make the work appear and seem easier. Also, screw heads are wider than their shanks (the cylindrical length of the bolt that extends from the underside of the head to the point) so that smaller forces and a bit less work can be used to provide the rotation required to drive the screw into an object.

It appears now to be the conclusion of this prezi and I hope you have learned a great deal more about simple machines. I also hope that your future endeavors working with prezi will be just as successful as this one.
