PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will use meter sticks, fulcrums, and spring scales to collect data on the force required to lift a 1 kilogram load off of a table. They will record data in a data chart that will clearly show the relationship between the position of the fulcrum and the ideal and actual mechanical advantages of the levers. Following completion of the data chart, there are ten questions that will require higher level thinking and a reinforcement of the scientific method.
Teachers can provide manufactured fulcrums and stands (such as those sold by Flinn catalogued as "clamp with hanger, lever" and "demonstration balance support") or they can require students to create their own fulcrums.
