    Could someone pls help and tell me how it uses levers?
    If you used a website could you give the link so I can check it out pls?

    F is the fulcrum (pivot), E is the effort (input force), and R is the load (output force). Because the fulcrum is on the opposite side of the effort, it is a second-class lever. These are designed to have mechanical advantage (Load / Effort), which means they reduce the amount of force you need to use, by increasing the distance in M = F x D.

    Hope I helped!
