Wheel and Axle By: Jenna, Drew, Dylan

The Wheel and axle is a wheel connected to an Axle, these two parts rotate together and the force is transferred from one to the other.

Turning a doorknob rotates the spindle which moves the latch. Examples a Screwdriver A faucet A bicycle A wheel barrel A fan A helicopter A Ferris wheel

How to use a Wheel and Axle There are two ways to use a Wheel and Axle. One Way is by wrapping a rope around a wheel with the lever sticking out. A object can be tied to the other end. If you turn the lever the rope will move the object toward you or away from you. The other way is having two wheels at the end of an axle. Then the wheels will roll, which makes movement.

Questions What are three examples of a wheel and axle? What is the definition of a Wheel and Axle? How does a Wheel and Axle work? How does the Wheel and Axle make work easier?

Answers A screwdriver, faucet, bicycle, wheel barrel, fan, helicopter and Ferris wheel. The wheel and axle is a wheel connected to an axle, these two parts rotate together and the force is transferred from one to the other. There are two ways to use a wheel and axle.

The other way is having two wheels at the end of an axle. Then the wheels will roll, which makes movement It causes less friction and increases of the amount of force applied to a rotating body.
