Simple machine

A lever is one of the six simple machines. A lever is a rigid bar or beam that can rotate or pivot about a fulcrum.

Load

An applied force is then used to move a load. Engineers use the lever to magnify the force applied to an object.

Fulcrum

A lever needs a fulcrum, the central pivot for the system on which the lever turns or balances and manipulates forces.
