Phil demonstrates the use of mechanical advantage to pull heavy objects with less effort. He acts as a superhero named Mechanical Advantage Using a Force Man to move a car using a rope, mechanical advantage, and his own strength.
Beakman defines machines and acts like Archimedes to explain why a screw is a machine.

Beakman then explains more about mechanical advantage and simple machines like the inclined plane.
