Best Answer

efficiency formula is (Wout/Win)*100%

Wout is the work done by the machine is called the output work

Win is the work done by you on a machine is called the input work

efficiency= useful work output/work input

For science, the effiency is:

AMA/IMA * 100

If the formula to calculate work is distance divided by time how do you apply the formula?

You would have a very tough time, because that isn't the formula to calculate work. (distance) divided by (time) is the formula to calculate speed. The formula to calculate work is: (force) multiplied by (distance).

How do you find the input power in the electric efficiency formula if you have the output power and the efficiency percent?

Output equals efficiency times input; in formula, Ot = Ef x In and so In = Ot/Ef. To calculate the original input, divide the output by the efficiency.

How do you calculate efficiency and how is it expressed?

For efficiency, you have to consider the energy or work that you get out of the machine, compared to the energy or work that you put into the machine. Its what you get out, divided by what you put in. By multiplying the result by 100, you should then get the efficiency expressed as a percentage, which is the normal way of describe how efficient a machine or process is. efficiency = (Work out/Work in) x 100 Sometimes you are given the efficiency in a problem, but then have to calculate either the work out or work in, so then its just a case of rearranging the equation above.

Explain efficiency and how to calculate it for different simple machines?

Efficiency means to calculate that is the machine is efficient enough to save your bill or use less electricity. To calculate the formula is:Efficiency = Energy output (what is the machine producing) divided by Energy input (what is the machine taking or using).
