simple or primary machine : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Can you tell me number and types of simple machine example incline plane-pully-hammer. The most complex machine is bilt from them and JYWs hidden agenda is to teach. Maybe a good place to start suggestions from?

Howdy Rob, Let's see if I can remember them all, there's a lever, pulley, inclined plane, screw, wheel and axel. Course a pulley is kinda like a wheel and axel, and a screw is simply an inclined plane wrapped around a shaft. For the life of me I can't remember if there is a sixth one. My team, 'The 3rd Wits' were going to do a demo next year on these if we don't make the cut this year, we would just as soon JYW didn't do anything yet on it so our demo will appear original. But no matter what The 3rd Wits do, it will be original, that's a given...Good Luck Monkeys!!! Ken
