You play the role of an acrobatic elephant character with the goal of escaping through the Exit Pipe each time.
While you may be replaying the ‘only level’ again and again (the ledges and platforms remain the same as you progress), this does not mean that it gets repetitive or boring! Each re-play of this clever puzzle and skill-based game provides a fun new test of your analytical thinking and problem-solving skills, visual awareness, reaction speed, coordination and keyboard control, and more. Good-old trial and error is important here too – Learning from your mistakes is the best way to figure out the correct solution in each new situation. Do you have the ability and drive to think outside the box to complete all levels?
Lever Physics is a challenging, math, physics and equilibrium-based game for upper elementary school / middle school students, high school teens and grownups where you must place and balance weights (fun items and characters) on a ‘seesaw-style’ beam connected to the ground by a pivot (fulcrum). Playing against the clock, you must place any available weights onto the lever (beam), and try to keep it perfectly balanced in the middle.
Some quick physics revision: A lever is a simple mechanical device which consists of a beam or stick or rod, and helps to lift weights with less effort. To be effective (as a lever), it must have a support to pivot on. This pivot is called a fulcrum. Levers can then be used to exert a large force over a small distance at one end of a structure by exerting only a small force over a greater distance at the other end of the same structure (beam). (Physics teachers - Brief correction welcome here if needed..!)
The Law of Equilibrium: A lever is in equilibrium when "the load" and "the effort" balance each other. The effort (weight) multiplied by its distance from the fulcrum = the load (weight) multiplied by its distance from the fulcrum. This law of equilibrium is true for all classes of levers.
For example, 2 pounds of effort exerted 4 feet from the fulcrum will balance 8 pounds located 1 foot on the other side of fulcrum. This effort times (multiplied by) distance about the fulcrum is the "Torque" (rotational force).
Back to Lever Physics Flash game!: Don't be fooled by the fun and playful imagery in this load balancing brain-teaser! It is a tricky, analytical thinking puzzle and logic problem solving challenge that requires good observation skills and hard thinking combined with mathematical and engineering solutions.
This interactive, point-and-click activity allows some trial and error (by quickly placing, removing and re-positioning weights) but you definitely cannot delay your decisions for long as the clock is ticking fast! Ok Balancing Master, can you ‘lever’ yourself to the top of the class?
