Machine Name&Purpose

LEVER- a bar that is free to pivot or turn about a fixed point.

A lever is used to lessen the force required to move something.

How does a LEVER works ?

A lever works by helping you overcome gravities force. This is done by making use a a fulcrum.

Why all machines are not 100% efficient ?

Because some energy has to always be used to overcome friction. 100% efficiency could possibly only existence in space, because there is lack of gravity and friction.

Difference between AMA and IMA

Actual Mechanical Advantage-Determined by measuring the actual forces on a machines.

Ideal Mechanical Advantage-Is the mechanical advantage in the absence of friction.
