b) state the law of conservation of energy (2marks)

c) In a machine, the load moves 2m when the effort moves 8m. If an effort of 20N is used to

raise a load of 60N, calculate the efficiency of the machine. (4marks)

d) A man uses an inclined plane to lift a 60kg load through a vertical height of 5metres. The

inclined plane makes an angle of 30 o with the horizontal. If the efficiency of the inclined

plane is 80%.calculate the
