Week 1 to 3 - Levers
How can a lever system make work easier? What force caused that action? How is energy transferred through the system when you lift that loadHow many ways can you arrange the fulcrum, effort, and load within a lever system? What are the different classes of levers?How much effort is needed to lift a load in a one pulley system? What is the difference between a one pulley and two pulley system?How can you predict the effort needed to lift a given load with the pulley system? What other lever and pulley systems can you design?
