A lever allows you to take an input force (the effort) and amplify the output force (the load). A seesaw at the playground is a simple example of a lever. Imagine that you have three children who are all exactly the same weight. One of the children can lift the other two children on the seesaw by sitting twice as far away from the fulcrum (Figure 1).

  We tried an experiment to show how levers work. We used a ruler, Lego Duplo as our fulcrum, and a the kids pushed down on the opposite end. We experimented how moving the fulcrum (the tension point in the middle of the ruler) made lifting the book either harder or easier depending on which way you moved it.   If he really did say this, it was with good reason, because it is thanks to Archimedes that we understand the law of the lever. There are 3 types of levers, conveniently enough called “class 1 levers,” “class 2 levers,” and (you guessed it), “class 3 levers.”.   Heavy Lifting with a Lever.
