What is Mechanical Advantage? | What is MA – definition

Mechanical Advantage (MA) is the ability to lift or move objects (load) with a large output force while applying only a little input force. The trade-off is that you must operate the smaller input force for a large distance. This is all seen through the work Equation. Work equals force times distance (W = FS). […]

Mechanical Advantage of a Lever with Formula

The mechanical advantage of a lever is the ratio of the load the lever overcomes and the effort a person or system applies to the lever to overcome some load or resistance. In simple words and as per the formula, it’s the ratio of load and effort. The formula of the mechanical advantage(MA) of a lever […]
