Did you notice that these oscillations are at a greater speed?
Fast oscillations are referred to as vibrations
Vibratory motion or vibrations are oscillatory motions which are very fast to begin with and soon slow down and come to rest.
Let’s make a blow pipe ‘peepi’ which helps us to observe vibrations. Materials required: 10 cm long pipe of one inch diameter, a balloon, the empty case of a pen, rubber band, 2 m long thread and cello tape. Method: Cut open the closed end of the balloon. Insert the pipe at one end of the balloon and the empty case of a pen at the other. Tie them strongly using a rubber band. Hold the pipe vertically and stretch the empty pen horizontally. Now the balloon will appear like a stretched membrane. In the middle of this stretched portion fix one end of the thread using cello tape. The ‘peepi’ is now ready for use.

Can you design and construct some tools which make use of various types of movements? Write a note if it in your science diary. write below the names of the pieces of equipment you have constructed exhibit them in your science club
Thulathekku: A long stick is tied to a post which acts as the fulcrum. A bucket is tied to the longer part of the stick and a weight is attached to the shorter part.The bucket is pulled down to the well.When it gets filled with water we release our hands.Then due to the weight at the other end the bucket with water rises up.When it reaches the top of the well it is poured into the channels.
Archimede’s screw: A long wooden tube is placed in water is a slanding position so that a part of it is dipped in water. This rotates on an axis.When the axis is rotated by hand water enter the wooden tube through the space between the screw and slowly rises up and flows out through the other end of the tube.
The force applied on a machine can be transferred to other parts of the machine or to other machines thus setting them into motion. We make use of the chain, wheel and axle, belt, etc., for this purpose.
Other lid also rotates.
When the small lid is turned to the left, in which direction does the big lid turn?
Big id turned towards right.
what happens when it is turned to the right?
Big lid turned towards left.
Does the big lid also complete one rotation when the small lid completes one?
How many times does the small lid rotate .when the big lid is rotated once?
More than one times. it is the interlocking of corrugation on the lids that enables one to rotate with the other .Such wheels are called gears. Gear transforms rotating motion from one part of the machine to another.
Do all the gears move at the same speed? What may be the reason?Discuss.
The speed of all the gears are not the same and it depends on its number of teeth .If the number of teeth is more the speed is less and vise versa. for example gear A has 40 teeth and B has 20 teeth and C has 10 teeth .if A rotates one time, B rotates 2 time and C rotates 4 time.
How shall we arrange gears to reduce the speed of rotation ? Show it with the help of a diagram. *If the rotation of the gears is in the descending order of their teeth .its speed rotation can be reduced.
if the rotation is in the ascending order f their teeth its speed of rotation can be reduced.
were have you seen gears.
• Gears of vehicles • Flour mill Clock • Grama phone • Rubber roller • Watch • Printing press • Sugar cane crusting machine • Cycle
Do they bring about change in the direction of motion and speed of motion ?
The use of gears can bring about changes in speeds and direction of motion . When large gear drives small gear an increase in rotational speed is obtained .When small gear driving large gear reduction in rotational speed is obtained For example , the speed of an electric motor is very high to be used a machine without reduction. By making use of the rotation of one part of a machine , gears help us set in motion more than one part of a machine at different speed and in different direction. When a big wheel is turned using a small wheel ,the speed of rotation decreases when it is reversed ,the speed increases . The use of gears can bring about changes in speed and direction of motion . We make use of this advantage in a number of machines.
