Examples of a Wheel and Axles?

Answer

A wheel and axle is a simple machine which involves the use of a wheel being attached to an axle so they both rotate in unison and create a mechanical advantage based on how large in diameter the wheel is. Wheel and axles are used to reduce effort in lifting or moving objects. Examples of a wheel and axle would be the tires on a car, doorknobs, water wheels, and the gears in a watch.
