Forces and Motion

Describing and using levers

Physics Narrative for 11-14 Supporting Physics Teaching

Force, energy and moment

To set a lever you need to choose a pivot. Once you had done this, you are able to measure the distances from the forces exerted to the pivot, and the distances that those forces move when the lever rotates. These two measures allow you to calculate both moment and energy. Energy conservation is more fundamental.
