COMING UP: A Lot of Simple Machine Pictures for Such a Simple Person
The Challenge Czar came up with a pretty tricky challenge for the first part of this month. I had to consult Google to clarify the definition of “simple machine.” The first thing I learned was that Rich didn’t just make up the term. I should never have suspected otherwise. The second thing I learned was the confirmation of a long-held belief that I really and truly do not have a brain designed for concepts that involve physics and mechanics. The third thing I learned was that, if you break it down to the basics of screw, lever, wedge, wheel & axle, pulley, and inclined plane, it isn’t really all that complicated.
Armed with that knowledge, I ventured out in search of all things SIMPLE and MACHINE-LIKE.
Another thing I learned from my research is that swivels are a form of SCREW. For demonstration purposes, I filmed a very enjoyable movie about a swivel. I’m sure you will like my documentary almost as much as I do.
