Mechanical Advantage Calculator


In simple machines, the mechanical advantage (MA) is very useful to increase the force applied several times more than the original force. For instance, a lever used for moving an heavier object, that is by applying force on the short end of the fulcrum and then moving the object at the other taller end is a mechanical advantage.

We can calculate mechanical advantage by dividing resistance force of the load by effort force. In simple words, output force divided by input force.

Mechanical Advantage Formula

In the below online mechanical advantage calculator, enter the required values in the input boxes and then calculate to find the output.


Resistance Force of the Load (Output Force):
Effort Force (Input Force):
