Name the machine for each of the following use:

(a) to multiply the force,

(b) to change the point of application of force,

(c) to change the direction of force,

(d) to obtain the gain in speed.

 

 

Best Answer

(a) To multiply force: a jack is used to lift a car.

(b) To change the point of application of force: the wheel of a cycle is rotated with the help of a chain by applying the force on the pedal.

(c) To change the direction of force: a single fixed pulley is used to lift a bucket full of water from the well by applying the effort in the downward direction instead of applying it upwards when the bucket is lifted up without the use of pulley.

(d) To obtain gain in speed: when a pair of scissors is used to cut the cloth, its blades move longer on cloth while its handles move a little.
