What can be classified as a screw?

by on Sep.18, 2018, under Uncategorized

I copied this definition below from a simple machines website.  Hope this helps.  You can also google simple machines and screws to see more examples of screws.

The screw is really a twisted inclined plane. It allows movement from a lower position to a higher position but at the same time it moves it in a circle. That makes it take up less horizontal space. A screw can also act to hold things together in some cases.

Some examples of the uses of a screw are in a jar lid, a drill, a bolt, a light bulb, faucets, bottle caps and ball point pens. Circular stairways are also a form of a screw.
