Functions of a Simple Machine

In most of the machines, the load is greater than the effort, However, in some machines, the load is equal to the effort or less than the effort but in such cases, the effort acts in a desired direction or at a convenient point which makes the job easy. Machine has the following two functions: 1. It changes the magnitude of the force required, i.e . . .

Types of Pulley

Pulley consists of two types: 1. Single Fixed Pulley System: It consists of single pulley. It is attached to some high platform and around its groove passes a rope. One end of the rope is attached to the load. Effort is applied at the other end of the rope. This pulley is commonly used in drawing water from village wells.   2. Sing . . .

Levers of the third order

In this types of levers the effort is situated between the load and the fulcrum. In the levers of third order, the effort arm is always smaller than the load arm. Thus more effort is required to lift a lighter load, This lever is also called speed multiplier lever as load moves through lerger distance as compared to the effort. For examples: Sugar . . .

Levers of the second order

In this type of levers, the load is situated between the effort and the fulcrum. In the levers of second order, the load arm is always smaller than the effort arm. Thus always less effort is required to move a heavy load.  For examples: Nut cracker, wheel barrow, oars of a boat are levers of the second order. this lever is also called force m . . .

Principal of Lever

It states that the product of an effort with effort arm is equal to the product of load with load arm. Load x Load arm = Effort x Effort arm  . . .
