Wheel and Axle
- The wheel and axle consists of a round disk, known as a wheel, with a rod through the center of it, known as the axle.
- This system uses angular momentum and torque to do work on objects, typically against the force of gravity.
- Ideal to demonstrate the principle of Wheel and Axle which states that ‘when a small force is applied to the rim of a wheel, it will exert a larger force on the object attached to the axle.
