    3rd Law for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction

    only two forces and only two objects

    If object A applies a force on object B, then object B MUST apply the same size force on object A in the opposite direction.

  • Work and power and simple machines

    Work = force times distance

    W = F x d

    Power = work divided by time

    P = W / t

  • Work and power and simple machines

    Work has NO time factor.

    If the same force is applied over the same distance, the same work is done even if it is done faster in one case.

    If work is done faster, more power is used. Power is how fast work is done.

  • Work and power and simple machines

    Two basic types of machines:Lever type simple machines (levers, wheel and axles, pulleys) and

    Inclined plane type simple machines(inclined planes, wedges, and screws)

  • Work and power and simple machines

    Simple machines may change direction of motion. (Like a pulley)A machine may also trade distance for force OR trade force for distance. (A machine CANNOT do both.)A machine CANNOT increase the WORK done.

  • Work and power and simple machines

    A simple machine increases output force over a shorter distance by requiring the force you put in to be applied over a longer distance. (You trade distance for force.)

  • Work and power and simple machines

    The mechanical advantage of a machine is force output divided by force input. It is greater than 1 if the machine puts out more force than you put in. It is less than 1 if the machine puts out less force than you put in.
