Simple Machines with Gomez
Gomez would like to demonstrate what he knows about levers. He says that this is a class one lever, meaning the pivot is in between the effort and the load.
As you can see, Gomez has moved the load closer to the pivot. Gomez says that this enables us to use less effort when we move the load. And Gomez is all about less effort, right Gome?
What's that, Gomez? Oh, now the load is very close to the pivot. This allows us to use very little effort when we move the load.
Gomez highly recommends Levers by Angela Royston. He taught the kids a lot about levers using this book as a resource! Thanks, Gome!
