Give me a place to stand on, and I will move the Earth
Using such sophisticated engineering, large labors and capitals must be involved into the construction of the tools.
To us physics beginners, the most famous remark from Archimedes might probably be:
Give me a place to stand on, and I will move the Earth.
Many other common tools, instruments, and appliances are applications of the principle of the lever.
Application1: Bumper jack!
Application2: a pair of pliers
Thus, we don’t need to climb the tree.
Application 5: Tweezers
Application 6: Fishing rod
Thank you for your time!
