Simple Machines

These machines are used in our everyday lives. The simple machines are a inclined plane, a wedge, a screw, a lever, a wheel and axle, and last a pulley.

Inclined Plane

Inclined Plane : A Hawaiian Falls water slide

Relation to Work : This simple machine allows you to exert force over distance.

Where : Hawaiian Falls

How it is doing work : This machine allows you to go down the slide faster but with a larger distance

Wedge

Wedge : Knife

Relation to Work : This simple machine allows you to put force on the object.

Where : Home

How it is doing work : This machine allows you to slice through the tomato with less effort

Screw

Screw : Water bottle

Relation to Force : This simple machine changes the direction of force as it rotates.

Where : JCPenny

How is it doing work : This machine is allowing you to go a greater distance while spinning with less effort.

Lever

Lever : Scissors

Relation to Force : This simple machine reduces force but increases distance.

Where : At my house

How it Works : This machine works by cutting something but allowing the person handling it to do it with less effort.

Wheel and Axle

Wheel and Axle : Trash Can

Relation to Work : This simple machine puts small input force over a long distance

Where : On my drive at home

How it Works : This machine works by 2 wheels being connected to 1 axle.

P.S. If my outfit looks weird its because I was about to go to bed, don't judge :)

Pulley

Pulley : Flag Pole

Relation to Force : This simple machine changes the direction of force

Where : On the highway.

How it Works : This machine works by putting force on the pulley which is by pulling it.

I hope all of you directors see the value in Flower Mound's simple machines :)
