st Our 1 Simple MachineOur first simple machine was the pulley.In this project we used it to go down and knockover some cards, as this happens the otherpart goes up .Another scenario would be using the pulley toget something from one place to up or down.
nd Our 2 Simple MachineOur second simple machine was a lever.In this project we used a lever by balancing aball and hitting one side of the lever to causethe other to rise and makes the ball go alongand down.In another scenario a lever is used as a teetertotter which goes up and down due to theweight.
rd Our 3 Simple MachineOur third simple machine was a inclined plane.In our project we used the inclined plane assome kind of ramp which leads the wheel andaxle down.In another scenario for a inclined plane is amovers van. At the back of the truck there is ainclined plane which is used to lower the heavyand big appliances down instead of lifting it.
th Our 4 Simple MachineOur fourth simple machine was a wheel andaxle.This was used for when the inclined planereleased the wheel and axle it went down theramp and pressed the button which turned iton.In another scenario this is used for fishing,when you bring the fish in you use the wheeland axle bringing the sting around and theobject to you.
ConclusionIn this project we learned how simple it can beby turning on a I pod using simple machines,but it was hard putting it all together. The end, Thank you!
