### Inclined Plane Wedge and Screw

A tilted, flat surface. It makes moving things from a high place to a low place easier.

An inclined plane makes work easier because you do less work when you push or pull an object up the incline.

Inclined Plane

A wedge is a special type of inclined plane. It has two or more surfaces that slop to an edge or point.

Real Life Examples

Wedge

Almost all machines that cut use a wedge. Axes, and knives are sharp tools that are shaped like wedges to help them make work easier.

Pins and needles are examples of pointed wedges.

Screw

A screw is an inclined plane in a spiral form.

A screw is a shaft with an inclined plane around the outside.

The inclined plane on a screw is called a thread.

Shaft

Point

Screws

As a screw turns, the thread pushes into something. The spiral threads make the screw move.

Bolt

Nuts and bolts always work together. Bolts have a thread on the outside.

Nuts have a thread on the inside. Turning a nut makes it move along a bolt.
