Unit 1.1 Mechanisms
Complete analysis of first-class lever
Class lecture on ideal and actual mechanical advantage and efficiency
Use this ASPIRE website to gain familiarity with your assigned machine (each group will be assigned one machine). Also use, as needed, any of the relevant documents or websites linked on the 1.1 Mechanisms webpage on this site.
Share your findings on a padlet. Describe how your machine works, how to maximize its mechanical advantage, various real-world examples of it in use, and describe whether the machine is ever used in such a way that its mechanical advantage is less than or equal to 1.0.
