### What is the mechanical advantage of a hammer if the input force is 125 N and the output force is 2000 N?

The idea is to divide the output force by the input force.

### Why is the actual mechanical advantage of an inclined plane alwaysess than the theoretical mechanical advantage?

This is because the actual mechanical advantage is the actual calculation found after dividing the effort force by the output force. Ideal mechanical advantage is what many people would call an estimate. When estimating mechanical advantage, the numbers are always rounded. This makes actual mechanical advantage less.

### What does the output force divided by the input force equal?

Efficiency of a machine or mechanical advantage

### How can you increase mechanical advantage of a gear system?

A mechanical advantage occurs when a tool such as a hammer is used that increases the amount of force being applied without increasing the effort of the person using the tool. To increase mechanical advantage, you could use a bigger hammer to increase output force.

### When is mechanical advantage less than 1?

When the output is less than the input. Mechanical advantage is expressed as the ratio of the output to the input.

### What is a Mechanical advantage equal to?

Mechanical advantage the resistance force. Mechanical advantage is equal output force divided by input force.

### Number of times that a machine increases the input force; equal to the output force divided by the input force?

Yes. The result of that calculation is the machine's mechanical advantage.

### How do you find the mechanical advantage in science?

mechanical advantage= output force over input force

### Actual mechanical advantage of a pulley?

Mechanical Advantage = distance moved at input / distance moved at output
