In common usage, the meaning is that of a device having parts that perform or assist in performing any type of work. A simple machine is a device that transforms the direction or magnitude of a force. The word "machine" is derived from the Latin word machina, which in turn derives from the Doric Greek (machana), Ionic Greek (mechane) "contrivance, machine, engine" and that from (mechos), "means, expedient, remedy."show more
