Transcript of Untitled Prezi
Magnitude measures how strong the force it. Is measured in Newtons (N) Load Force: force that input force needs to move
Input force: The force applied
Output force: The force applied to the load
Lever: A bar that pivots at a fulcrum. Consists of a load arm and effort arm
class 1: fulcrum is between load and input force
class 2: load force is between fulcrum and input
class 3: input force is between the fulcrum and load force Inclined plane: a tilted flat surface e.g., stairs, ramps
Wedge: A modified inclined plane e.g., a knife
Screw: An inclined plane cut into a central core e.g., drill
Wheel and Axles: e.g., steering wheel, gears
Pulley: e.g., crane
Forces and Levers Mechanical Advantage There are many ways to do the same task. Some require less effort
When a machine turns a small input force into a larger output force we say it gives us a mechanical advantage
Mechanical advantage (MA) is the ratio of output force to input force MA= effort arm length/load arm length
MA=input distance/output distance Mechanical advantage Ideal mechanical advantage: The mechanical advantage if all input force is converted into output force (not possible in real life)
Actual Mechanical advantage: the mechanical advantage in real life applications
actual MA=measured output force/measured input force Work In scientific terms work is only done when force applied to an object moves an object a certain distance it is measured in Joules (J)
Work = force applied (N) x Distance moved (m)
Energy: The ability to do work
