### Is mechanical advantage the number of times the input force is multiplied by a machine?

it really depends on the machine you are talking about. there are 6 simple machines: the lever, wheel and axle, pulley, inclined plane, wedge, and the screw. Lever = (distance from fulcrum to effort) divided by (distance from fulcrum to resistance) Wheel and Axle = (diameter of the wheel) divided by (diameter of the axle) Pulleys = the # of pulleys used Inclined Plane and Wedge = (length of slope) divided by (height) Screw = (circumference) divided by (pitch) Hope this helped :)

Yes

### Galileo found that a ball rolling down one inclined plane would roll how far up another inclined plane?

To nearly its original high

Yes

### What is maximum value of mechanical advantage?

Mechanical advantage is maximum when weight lifted is extremly high and for which C/W is extremely small so as to be negleted, Max. Mechanical Advantage=1/m

### What is the ideal mechanical advantage of a lever 7 meters long and 3 meters high?

### What is the mechanical advantage of a ramp that is 8 m long and 2 m high porch?

3.0 m

### What is the IMA of an inclined plane 8m long and 2m high?

The exact answer of 8m/2m = 4 meters high. Thank you.

### Is it good to have a high mechanical advantage?

It may be good in some cases. A high mechanical advantage comes at a cost - you need to apply less force, but you need to apply it over a greater distance.
