In science, work is defined as a force
acting on an object to move it across a distance. Pushing, pulling, and
lifting are common forms of work. Furniture movers do work when they
move boxes. Gardeners do work when they pull weeds. Children do work
when they go up and down on a see-saw. Machines make their work easier.
The furniture movers use a ramp to slide boxes into a truck. The
gardeners use a hand shovel to help break through the weeds. The
children use a see-saw to go up and down. The ramp, the shovel, and the
see-saw are simple machines.
