### What changes can a machine make a force?

It can either increase or decrease the output force, as compared to the input force. The output force may also be equal to the input force.

### What is the function of a jackscrew?

Using mechanical advantage to offer a large lifting force from a much smaller input force, essentially an inclined plane or wedge.

### What kind of pulley changes the direction of the input force but does not change the amount of the force you apply?

They pulley is applied by the output force and then it is being added on by the input work.

### What are the three classes of levers and an anatomical example of each one?

First Class Levers The fulcrum is between the input force and the load Always changes the direction of the input force and can be used to increase the force or the distance Second-class levers The load is between the fulcrum and the input force Does not change direction of the input force Output force is greater than the input force. Third-Class lever The input force is between the fulcrum and the load Does not change the direction of the input force Output force is less than input force.

### What is a two-sided inclinded plane used to separate a simple machine that converts downward input force into sideways output force?

That sounds like a 'wedge', like a chisel.

### What kind of pulley changes the direction of input force but does not change amount of force you apply?

A single pulley alters the direction of the input but confers no mechanical advantage.
