A paintbrush is not a machine in the sense that the word "machine" is used in elementary physics. Machines are used to do work, usually by providing leverage in some way.
In that way, Atwood's machine, a collection of ropes and pulleys, is a machine, but the gasoline engine is not.
This is merely an issue of terminology and classification and has historical roots. It is not a statement of a basic law of science.
They have changed by getting better handles, improved gears and sharper cutters.
It's a first class lever.
Kinda-sorta, but probably not.
Anything that has a stand-by mode, a built-in clock, A LED shining or anything like that will use a littlepower as long as it's plugged in.
It'll use a lot more power while actually being used, but it's possible that all that time on stand-by together will require as much energy as a few moments of usage.
A blender or a can opener are usually simple devices that don't have any clocks or indicator lights, so they are quite unlikely to use any power while in stand-by mode. A TV however will pull a few watts even if it isn't turned on.
It allows you to actually eat the food that's been canned without bashing the can open or chopping it open with something sharp. Both of these methods would result in you hurting yourself.
The can opener.
A kitchen without a can opener is like a boat without an anchor
Can manufacturers of early cans recommended using a cold chisel and hammer to open their cans, but users rarely had such tools available in the field when they wanted to eat.
The first "can openers" were often whatever device that the person already had, typically a knife or bayonet. These "can openers" were improvised in their use and were usually less than adequate.
On January 5, 1858, Waterbury native Ezra J. Warnerinvented the first tool specifically intended as a can opener (not some other tool being forced into this use). This was the first recorded patent (US patent No 19063) for a can opener. However, Warner's can opener was not a tool for household use, because it could be dangerous. Grocers opened the cans before they left the store.
The first can opener safe for household use was patented by William Lyman on July 12, 1870 (US patent No 105346).
In short, the answer is no.
The long answer (quoted from Wikipedia):
"Dedicated can openers appeared in the 1850s and were of a primitive claw-shaped or "lever-type" design. In 1855, Robert Yeates, a cutlery and surgical instrument maker of Trafalgar Place West, Hackney Road, Middlesex, UK, devised the first claw-ended can opener with a hand-operated tool that haggled its way around the top of metal cans"
Its purpose is to grip the underside of the metal edge of the can, and push it, making the can push against the cutter blade.
I tried searching on google. the person who had answered before me didn't even try to find one on google, as I did NOT find one. I suggest you go onto a website like wikipedia, but even then I'm not sure. It's not one of the most popular objects and/or objects that need a labelled diagram so... Yeah. You will probably simply make your own diagram. Sorry I couldn't help more.
A lever type can opener
Use the unglazed edge on the bottom of a pottery plate.ANS2:Well, that would be like trying to drink water without water. Any thing or technique to sharpen a knife would be a sharpener.
If you are asking for a substitute for a whet stone, and you don't have a lot of respect for the knife, you could try a grinder or a file. Placing the blade in nitric acid will leave the edge sharp and jagged. If you have a lot of time, you could get some jeweler's rouge and polish the blade to a fine edge.
OXO branded can openers can be purchased at various online sites as well as the local departmental stores or specialty stores like Bed Bath and Beyond. While it may be convenient to purchase from local stores, online sites tend to have the best prices and offer ratings as well as user testimonials if required.
For opening tins
-This was taken from Wikipedia-
During the first years of the French Revolutionary Wars, the notable French newspaper Le Monde, prompted by the government, offered a hefty cash award of 12,000 francs to any inventor who could come up with a cheap and effective method of preserving large amounts of food. The new, larger armies of the period required increased, regular supplies of quality food; limitations on food availability were among the factors restricting effective military campaigns to the summer and fall months. In 1809, the French confectioner Nicolas François Appert observed that food cooked inside a jar did not spoil unless the seals leak, thus developed a method of sealing food inside glass jars. The reason why food did not spoil was unknown at the time, since it would be another 50 years before Louis Pasteur demonstrated the role of microbes in food spoilage. However, glass containers presented challenges for transportation. Glass jars were largely replaced in commercial canneries with cylindrical tin or wrought-iron canisters (later shortened to "cans") following the work of Peter Durand (1810). Cans are both cheaper and quicker to make and much more resilient than fragile glass jars. Glass jars have, however, remained popular for some high-value products and in home canning. Tin-openers were not to be invented for another thirty years - at first, soldiers had to cut the cans open with bayonets or smash them open with rocks. The French Army began experimenting with issuing tinned foods to its soldiers, but the slow process of tinning foods and the even slower development and transport stages prevented the army from shipping large amounts around the French Empire, and the war ended before the process could be perfected. Unfortunately for Appert, the factory which he had built with his prize money was burned down in 1814 by Allied soldiers invading France. Following the end of the Napoleonic Wars, the canning process was gradually put into practice in other European countries and in the United States. Based on Appert's methods of food preservation, Peter Durand patented a process in the United Kingdom in 1810, developing a process of packaging food in sealed airtight wrought-iron cans. Initially, the canning process was slow and labour-intensive, as each can had to be hand-made and took up to six hours to cook properly, making tinned food too expensive for ordinary people to buy. In 1824 meats and stews produced by the Appert method were carried by Sir William Edward Parry in his voyage to find a northwestern passage to India.

Funny question probably because different people like different styles... That is something I would have never thought to ask...
Yes. In some cases, a magnet is a very useful tool to use with a can opener, because Without the magnet, the cut open can lid can fall into the can and it's difficult to get it out. With the magnet, once the can lid is cut open, it sticks to the magnet and does not fall into the can. Without the magnet, it's probably better to only cut open the can lid about 90% percent and pull the remaining part back, so it does not fall into the open can.
