A lever is a simple machine that helps you move things with less effort. Levers let you lift heavy things with just a little force. Levers help you change the direction and distance of a force.

A lever is a tool that is used to help lift or move an object by using a force called a fulcrum. The fulcrum is the point at which the lever pivots, and the object is moved by pushing down on one end of the lever. There are three types of levers: first class, second class, and third class. First class levers have the fulcrum at the middle, second class levers have the load at the middle, and third class levers have the force at the middle. The mechanical advantage of a lever is the ratio of the distance between the fulcrum and the load to the distance between the fulcrum and the force.

The lever was first studied by Greek philosopher and scientist Archimedes in the 3rd century B.C. The lever is the simplest machine, made up of only two parts: a lever and a fulcrum. The lever can be used to lift objects that are heavier than the user by using the force of gravity.
