third class levers

if the effort is between the fulcrum and the load , it is a third-class lever

they move a small load quickly with a large effort

eg: bat, broom, golf club, tennis racquet

 

third-class levers are not force multipliers

they are speed-multipliers as they move a small load quickly through a larger distance
