What do you mean by machine?

A machine is a tool created by people to make work easier. It multiplies the effect of human effort. The machine produces a mechanical advantage.  Often a machine will change one form of energy to another form of energy. Simple machines increase or change the direction of a force.

A simple machine is any of six or more elementary mechanisms, as the lever, wheel and axle, pulley, screw, wedge, and an inclined plane that makes work easy and delivers mechanical advantage.

A machine is a device that does a physical task. Some machines make moving or lifting things easier. Other machines carry people from place to place. Yet other machines help in building or making things.
