This lever forces stock illustration depicts a simple machine made up of a beam pivoted at a fixed hinge that is used to transfer a force to a load and, in most cases, to provide a mechanical advantage. A lever is a rigid part that can rotate on a single point. The lever is classified into three types based on the locations of the fulcrum, load, and effort. Leverage is also a mechanical advantage obtained in a system. It is ideal for lifting or moving heavy objects. It is a simple but useful machine that can be found almost anywhere. As shown in this lever forces stock illustration diagram, good examples of levers include the seesaw, crowbar, fishing line, oars, wheelbarrows, and garden shovel.
