Simple Machines. Group HH. Inclines. By: DJ Dinnison. What Is an Incline?. An inclined plane is a simple machine. It is a flat surface that is higher on one end. You can use this machine to move an object to a lower or higher place.

I used this site to find compound machines that included simple machines.
I used this site to find information on my simple machine and figure out its use and function.

assume that the length of the slope is 10 inches and the thickness is 4 inches. The mechanical advantage is equal to 10/4 or 2 1/2.
MA = L / W
Snowblower- uses levers, pulleys, screw, wedge, incline plane, wheel and axel.
It uses the wedge as the blades inside.
Shovel it uses a wedge and lever
The shovel wedges itself in the ground and you push on the lever to push dirt up.
Scissors- wedge and a lever
The scissors wedge the item their trying to cut.
By Jarred Binner
A lever is a rigid object that is used with a pivot point to multiply the mechanical force that can be applied to another object. This leverage is also termed mechanical advantage, and is one example of the principle of moments.

snow blower use a screw, wheel, pulley, wedge and a lever
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screw -wikipedia got info about what a screw is and who it is a simple machine

How To Use a Wheel & Axle
How a Wheel & Axle Works
The wheel & axle can be used as a tool to increase the force one applies, or to increase the distance traveled.
Here is how this works:
One applies a force on the wheel, whose diameter D is larger than the axle.The force is transmitted to the axle, which has diameter d.This resultant force, that is greater than the force one applied, does some work for that person.The force that does the work is Greater by an aspect of D/d.
