A lever with a mechanical advantage greater than one is used to increase distance. A lever is a simple machine connected to ground by a hinge called a fulcrum.
Mechanical advantage refers to the ratio of the force produced by a machine to the force applied to it. A lever with a mechanical advantage greater than one is used to increase distance.
A second class lever always has a mechanical advantage greater than 1.
Second class lever. . . . Always greater than 1 . Third class lever . . . . . Always less than 1 . First class lever . . . . . Can be greater than 1 or less than 1 depending on position of fulcrum.
Because of the lever's mechanical advantage.
lever, gear train
The mechanical advantage of a pulley can be greater than 1.The efficiency cannot but that is a different matter.
Every lever has a mechanical advantage. It may be less than ' 1 ' ... the outputforce may be less than the input force ... but it can always be calculated.The 'ideal' mechanical advantage ... that is, in the absence of losses ... isClass I lever . . . . . any number, depending on dimensions of the structureClass II lever. . . . . more than 1Class III lever.. . . . less than 1
'Mechanical Advantage' of a 3rd class lever is always less than 1. Force on the resistance is less than the effort force. Distance moved by the load is greater than distance moved by the effort. Eg: fishing pole.
Mechanical Advantage is given by the following equation: MA = Load Effort On a class 2 lever, the fulcrum (pivot) is at one end of the lever and the work applied is at the other end. The load is then applied near the fulcrum, as common with the wheel barrow. A class 3 lever has the effort applied between the fulcrum and the resistance. Therefore, a much greater effort will be required to produce the same moment value. A typical C2 lever has a much greater distance in which to produce the load than a C3 lever.
