Mechanical Advantage (MA) is the factor by which force is increased. Ideal Mechanical Advantage (IMA) is a “perfect world” result. Actual Mechanical Advantage (AMA) accounts for losses. • Work = Force x Distance – Work in = Work out • MA = Force out / Force In • MA = Distance In / Distance Out • Force is measured in Newtons (N) (1kg on Earth pulls at 9.81 N) • Distance is measured in Meters (m), Work in N*m (Joules) • Work out / Work in = Efficiency • Six Simple Machines: • • • • • • Lever Wheel and Axle Pulley Inclined Plane Wedge Screw Machines MA < 1 : Input force < Output force Effort Force Resistance Force Effort [ Distance ] Resistance Distance TORQUE is force that causes turning, Force x Distance from the turning point. Solve levers: Torque = 0 (Effort) x (Effort’s distance from Fulcrum) - (Resistance) x (Resistance’s distance) = 0 Or: Effort x Distance = Resistance x Distance 1 Equation, 1 unknown - Can solve! Class 1 Lever MA can be any value Resistance Effort Force Force Solve levers: Torque = 0 (Effort) x (Effort’s distance from Fulcrum) - (Resistance) x (Resistance’s distance) = 0 Or: Effort x Distance = Resistance x Distance 1 Equation, 1 unknown - Can solve! Class 1 Lever MA can be any value Resistance Effort Force Force http://www.citytechnology.org/stuff-thatworks/levers-have-a-lot-of-class Class 2 Lever: MA>1 (Large Force) Effort Resistance http://www.citytechnology.org/stuff-thatworks/levers-have-a-lot-of-class Class 3 Lever MA<1 (Large Distance) Resistance Effort http://www.citytechnology.org/stuff-thatworks/levers-have-a-lot-of-class Gear Gears, Belt Pulley, Wheel and Axle Large-diameter and small-diameter turning together Either can provide Effort IMA = Diameter of Drive / Diameter of Load Belt Pulley A free-spinning wheel (toy car) is not a machine!

You pull with 10N force on a rope for 3 meters, and the load lifts 0.5m. What is the IMA?” IMA = Distance in / Distance out. 3m / 0.5m = 6 “Which simple machine is a Windlass?” “Identify these types of gears” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gear ) “How does torque matter with levers?” “A 10kg block is pushed 6m horizontally on a board, with force 42N. Calculate the Coefficient of Friction.” (F=μN. 42N = μ*10kg * 9.81N/kg – So 42N / 98.1N = μ) • Compound Machines = Simple Machines, with: • • • • Screws Multiple simple machines working together Friction Problems Potential / Kinetic Energy problems • Scoring: • 50 points for Exam • 40 points for two ratios • 10 points for time • 100 points total [Beware of Significant Figures] [0.2 pts per 1 % wrong] [0.04 pts per second] • Success: • • • • Learn – Measurement, understanding of machines Plan – Strategy for your team (What to study, how to practice) Know the rules – Spirit and letter of rules Logistics – Schedule, Food, Communication, Emergencies • Machines • Types of Simple Machines • Torque and Force • Lever Classes • Simple Machines Math • Identifying Simple Machines • Applying Simple Machine Principles Resources • http://www.sciencenc.com/events.php • http://soinc.org/simple_machines_b • https://www.khanacademy.org/science/physics/work-andenergy/mechanical-advantage/v/introduction-to-mechanical-advantage • http://www.wikipedia.org/ • Email me: [email protected]
