PT2-Test 1

A loading ramp rises 12 feet on one end to a platform. If the ramp has an IMA of 4, how long is the ramp? Grade=Do/Di IMA=1/Grade 48ft
In a friction-less block and tackle, a 50 pound input force applied to the block and tackle raises a 300 pound load 2 feet off the ground. How far was the rope pulled by the input force? Fi*Di=Fo*Do 12ft
The actual mechanical advantage of a block and tackle system is 5. In order to raise a 300 pound load 2 feet off the ground, what input force must be applied. Fi=Fo/AMA 60lb.
How much force would be required to push a 720 newton load up an inclined plane that is 15 meters long and raised 2 meters at the top end? Fi=Fo*Do/Di 96N
In a comparison of ideal and actual mechanical advantage, AMA is generally: Less than IMA
Make sure all units are the ____ when solving the problem. WATCH FOR THIS!!! BE CAREFUL! Same
The input force of a certain lever system is between the pivot point (fulcrum) and the load. This lever system would be: Third class
The load of a certain lever system is between the pivot point (fulcrum) and the input force. This lever system would be: Second class
In a force transformer system, when "work out" is equal to "work in" the mechanical advantage is said to be: Ideal
If a force transformer is 100% efficient, then "work in" is: Equal to work out
A force transformer has a source (or input), a coupling device (or transformer) and a: Load (or output)

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
