It is easy to see that the it is clear that, the steeper the plane, the less is the portion of thread has at every point the same inclination as the inclined the resistance borne by it. If, for example, one incline is 15 plane, and that a particle in travelling up the screw will pass inches long, and the other 21 inches, a weight of 5 pounds over the same distance as if it moved up the plane. on the former will balance one of 7 pounds on the latter. A screw, then, is a cylinder with a spiral ridge raised upon it; For, supposing the vertical height of the summit to be 6 inches, this ridge is sometimes made with a the portion of the force of 5 pounds which acts downwards, and square edge (Fig. 79 a), and then has tends to raise the other, is i of 5 pounds, which equals 2 more strength; but usually it is pounds; while the portion of the other which acts downwards is sharp, as seen in a common screw, of 7 pounds, which is also equal to 2 pounds.
