A rigid body with the fulcrum located between the load and the effort. (seesaw)
The fulcrum is at one end and the effort at the other, with the load between the fulcrum and the effort (wheelbarrow)
The fulcrum is at one end and the load at the other with the effort between the fulcrum and the load. (tweezers)
In order to determine the work that each class performs and how to implement them we will need to discuss the following terms:
(MA) The ratio of a system's output force to its input force.
Amplification of Force (MA<1)
When the effort(input force) is further from the fulcrum than the load
Amplification of Speed (MA>1)
When the load is further from the fulcrum than the effort.
