Inclined Planes Screws Wedges Inclined Planes Screws Wedges Presentation Transcript

  • Inclined Planes Screws Wedges
  • What is an inclined plane?  An inclined plane is a form of simple machine that consists of a slanted surface along which objects are easier to push upward that to lift straight up.  A ramp and stairs are both examples of inclined planes.
  • Length and Height of Inclined Planes  It is easier to move an object up a more sloping (longer in length) inclined plane than it is to move the same object up a steeper (shorter in length) inclined plane.  Example: It would be easier to ride a bike up a longer but shorter hill. Steep Sloping Hill Hill
  • Why do you use an inclined plane?  Incline planes reduce the effort needed to carry something over a long distance or to raise something to a higher level.

  • More Examples of Inclined Planes
  • What is a screw?  A screw is a simple machine consisting of a pole or rod with an inclined plane wrapped around it.  Screws are used for holding things together (wood screws), drilling holes in things (drills), and lifting things (car jacks).
  • Common Examples of Screws
  • What is a wedge?  A wedge is another version of the inclined plane. Usually it is thought of as two inclined planes put back to back.  Wedges help us cut things, chop things, and split things apart. They are also used to hold things in place.  Axes, knives, and scissors are all wedges.
