History of Levers
How Levers works
A lever is a beam connected to ground by a hinge, or pivot, called a
fulcrum. The ideal lever does not dissipate or store energy. In this case, the
power into the lever equals the power out, and the ratio of outpu
To start with, geometry consists of two schools: Euclidean and nonEuclidean. The "flat" geometry of everyday intuition is called Euclidean
geometry (or parabolic geometry), and the non-Euclidean geometries are
called hyperbolic ge
