A see-saw is an example of a simple machine. A force is exerted in one place, causing movement and a force at another place in the see-saw.
Notice that the distance from the pivot is greater on the left than it is on the right.
If you multiply the force by the distance travelled, you get the same value for the effort and for the load.
Gardeners and builders use wheelbarrows to carry loads from place to place. The wheelbarrow is a simple machine with the load near the pivot (the wheel) and the effort on the handles far from the pivot. When you lift the wheelbarrow, the handles move through a bigger distance than the load does.
You may have used a pair of forceps to pick up a small object in the lab. In this case, your fingers provide the effort force, and this is nearer to the pivot than the load (the object you are picking up):
This is the opposite to the see-saw and wheelbarrow, but again if you multiply the force by the distance travelled, you get the same value for the effort and for the load.
