Describe the types and properties of materials that are inputs to technological systems. Identify the types of information that are inputs to technological systems. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

5 Learning Objectives Identify the major types and sources of energy as inputs in technological systems. List the sources of finances that are used as inputs to technological systems. Explain the importance of time with regard to technological systems. Explain why we need to use and conserve intelligently the resources that are inputs to technological systems. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

6 Inputs Inputs can be grouped into seven major categories: People.
Tools and machines. Materials. Information. Energy. Finances. Time. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

7 People Scientists develop knowledge.
People design, operate, and use technological systems. Engineers design. Production workers, technicians, mechanics, entrepreneurs, managers, and support staff operate. Consumers are the users of the systems. (Northern Telecom) © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

8 Creativity Creativity is a key part to production and technology in general. A renowned example of a creative person is Art Fry, the developer of Post-it® notes. 3M has continued to make many useful and innovative products due to its creative production teams. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

9 Tools Every technology uses a common set of hand tools to produce, service, and maintain products and equipment. Specifically used for measuring, cutting, drilling, gripping, pounding, and polishing tools. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

10 Machines Machines can be simple or complex, with complex machines being comprised of simple machines. Simple machines operate on two basic principles: The principle of the lever: Machines such as the lever, wheel and axle, and pulley. The principle of the inclined plane: Machine such as the inclined plane, wedge, and the screw. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

11 Lever Mechanisms A lever has a lever arm that rests and turns on a fulcrum. Three categories: First-class levers like a pry bar. Second-class levers like a wheelbarrow. Third-class levers are like a person moving dirt with a shovel. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

12 Lever Usage Like all machines, either force multiplier or distance multiplier. Both wheel and axles and pulleys, second-class levers, can be used as force or distance multipliers. Pulleys can also change direction of force. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

13 Inclined Plane Mechanisms

15 Classification of Materials
Can we enlarge this image? Links for “natural materials,” “synthetic materials,” “composite materials,” “organic materials,” “exhaustible materials,” “genetic materials,” gases,” “liquids,” and “solids.” Could we possibly also create a link for metal and wood to a slide on solids (slide 13)? © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

16 Classification of Materials
Materials can be classified as natural, synthetic, or composite; organic or inorganic; exhaustible or genetic; gas, liquid, or solid. Solids can then be subdivided into metals, plastics, ceramics, or composites. Grouping the materials helps when choosing what materials to use for what purpose. All materials have different but similar properties. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

17 Solids © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

18 Properties of Materials
Seven properties: Physical: size, shape, density, moisture content, and porosity. Mechanical: strength, plasticity, elasticity, ductility, and hardness. Chemical: chemical activity and corrosion resistance. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

19 Properties of Materials
Seven properties (cont’d): Thermal: thermal conductivity, thermal shock resistance, and thermal expansion. Electrical and magnetic: electrical conductivity and magnetic permeability. Acoustical: acoustical transmission and acoustical reflectivity. Optical: color, optical transmission, and optical reflectivity. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

20 Information Facts and figures we call data can be organized.
When data is organized, it is then called information. Information includes scientific and technological information, as well as humanities. Knowledge is best described as learning and applying information. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

21 Types of Energy © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

22 Sources of Energy Sources of energy are grouped in terms of supply.
The sun is inexhaustible energy. Renewable energy would be living matter, like trees. Coal, petroleum, and natural gas are all sources of exhaustible energy. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

23 Finances Money to develop and operate technological systems can be obtained in two ways: Equity financing: Sole proprietorship, individually financed businesses. Partnership, co-owned businesses. Corporation, shares. Debt financing: Borrowing money. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

24 Time Time was at first measured by the sun and then by harvesting and planting periods (months). New technological advances measure days, hours, seconds, and nanoseconds.

32 Review What two sources of finance are there?
Equity or debt financing. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

33 Review Why is time important to technological advances?
We judge things on how fast they are, how much time they take. Time is essential so we don’t like to “waste” it. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

34 Review Why do we need to use our resources carefully?
Many inputs have a limited supply. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.
