  2. 2. What are levers? • • • • • • • • A lever is a machine consisting of a beam or rigid rod pivoted at a fixed hinge, or fulcrum. The word comes from the French lever, "to raise" A lever amplifies an input force to provide a greater output force, which is said to provide leverage An input force is put in order to provide a greater output force, the input force provide leverage. Levers are used to: increase force and to change the direction of motion sometimes we use levers without knowing it. there are levers we use every day.
  3. 3. Classes of levers • Class 1: Fulcrum in the middle: the effort is applied on one side of the fulcrum • It uses a fulcrum in between • The closer it is to the load, the more force is applied.
  4. 4. • Class 2:resistence is in the middle and the fulcrum is on the other side and force on the opposite side of the fulcrum.
  5. 5. • Class 3: Effort in the middle: the resistance is on one side of the effort and the fulcrum is located on the other side.
