Unit 6: Strength and Elasticity of the Body
- Identify classes of levers and explain advantages and disadvantages of each classes in terms of mechanical advantage and range of motion.
- Apply lever and static equilibrium concepts to solve for forces and calculate mechanical advantage in scenarios involving levers. 
- Identify and define the features of a stress-strain curve, including stress, strain, elastic region, elastic modulus, elastic limit, plastic region, ultimate strength, and fracture/rupture.
- Apply the Hooke’s Law along with the definitions of stress, strain, and elastic modulus to calculate the deformations of structures.
