# Mechanical Advantage and Efficiency - Monroe Co Schools KY

Mechanical Advantage and Efficiency Mechanical Advantage A machines MA is the number of times a force exerted on a machine is multiplied by the machine. The MA is a ratio between the output and input force MA = Output Force / Input Force If you exert a force of 20 N on a can opener, and the opener exerts a force of 60 N on the can, the ideal mechanical advantage of the can opener is A.

Examples: can opener a ramp Mechanical Advantage < 1 A machine with a mechanical advantage of less than 1 does not multiply the force but increases the distance and speed. Example: Hockey Stick Paper Fan Mechanical Advantage = 1 A machine with a mechanical advantage of 1 means that a machine changes the direction of the force. Example: Rope The mechanical advantage of a

machine that changes only the direction of force is 43% A. 1 B. Less than 1 C. Greater than 1 D. 0 39% 13% 4% A. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 21 22

Efficiency of Machines To calculate the efficiency of a machine, divide the output work by the input work and multiply the result by 100 percent. Efficiency = Output work * 100% Input work The efficiency of a machine compares A. Force to mass B. Output work to input work. C. Force to friction D. Friction to mass 95% 5% 0% A. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Ideal Mechanical Advantage The ideal mechanical advantage is the mechanical advantage of a machine without friction. The more efficient a machine is, the closer the actual mechanical advantage is to the ideal mechanical advantage. An ideal machine would have an efficiency of 87% A. B. C.
