Levers of the first order

In this type of levers, the fulcrum is situated between the load and the effort. The effort arm may be equal or less than or more than load arm. In case the effort arm is more than load arm, a small effort is required to more load. However, if effort arm is less than load arm, a large effort is required to move load. 

Examples: Sea saw, Scissors, Water Pump, Crowbar and Claw hammer etc..
