What is a Wedge?
What is a wedge? Wedges are triangle-shaped objects or tools that can be used to make work easier. The small pointed end (which can often be blunt, not sharp) can be used to lift and separate objects. One example of a wedge that performs this task would be a screwdriver. Other wedges help hold things in place, like a doorstop. Can you think of other wedges that people use on a regular basis?
Use wedges to do mechanical work.
