Mechanical Advantage of Wheel and Axle Calculator

The ratio of the output force that is generated by the mechanical devices or tools to the force (input) that is applied for the working of the machine is called as mechanical advantage. Wheel and Axle is a simple machine identified by Renaissance scientists. Wheel is attached to the axle, both rotate together transferring a force from one to another. This online calculator is used to find the mechanical advantage of the wheel and axle with radius of the wheel and axle.

Formula:

Mechanical Advantage of Wheel and Axle
MA = rw / ra Where, MA = Mechanical Advantage rw = Wheel Radius ra = Axle Radius

Example:

Mechanical Advantage

If the wheel radius is 5 m and axle radius is 2 m, then
MA = 5 / 2
MA = 2.5

Wheel and axle are used to move objects. Axle helps the wheel to turn. Faster the rotation of the axle, faster the wheel spins.
