1. Write the goal of the labs on levers and pulleys or the question you tried to answer. Answer: Levers: To find out how levers change the effort (force) needed to do work. Pulleys: To find out which type of pulley allows for the least amount of effort.

2. Which observations, experiences, or lesson materials helped you form a hypothesis? Answer: I have never done anything similar to this so the class connect video helped me a lot!

Answer: If we change the length of the effort, then the effort will be greater. If we test three difference pulleys lifting 500 grams, then the single moving pulley will require the least effort.

6. Compare your data with your hypothesis. Explain how the data supports or does not support your hypothesis. If your data does not support your hypothesis, use the data you collected to answer the original question. Answer: My data agreed with all my hypothesis. I guessed that the effort would be greater and the effort ended up being greater. Pulleys: To find out which type of pulley allows for the least amount of effort.
