### Describe why a high-efficiency machine is more desirable than a low-efficiency machine?

Efficiency is the ratio of the energy converted into useful work
by the machine to the energy supplied to the machine. Certainly it
will not be possible to convert all the energy supplied into useful
work because of wastage of energy due to so many reasons. So
efficiency will be always less than 1.
As the efficiency becomes more the loss would become less. Hence
it is desirable.

###### Asked in Physics, Social Sciences

### If the input work on a machine is equal to its output work does the machine has efficiency?

If the useful energy output of a system is equal to the energy
input, the following calculation can be done:
Efficiency = (Useful energy out) / (Energy In)
Efficiency = 1
Efficiency = 100%
Therefore, the machine you describe does have an efficiency value,
which is equal to 100%. Very few situations like this exist though,
unfortunately.

###### Asked in Simple Machines (engineering)

### How do you find the efficiency of a simple machine?

The efficiency of a machine is found by considering the useful
energy or work that comes out of it, and dividing this by the work
that you put into it. Multiply by 100 to get the answer in terms of
percentage.
You should never get more than 100% efficiency, or 100%, since
energy will be lost (to heat caused by friction for example).

### What is the efficiency of a machine that converts all the input energy to useful output energy?

It's efficiency would be 100%, but it's basically a theoretical
ideal, because no matter how much it is minimized, "machine"
automatically means a certain amount of friction, and a certain
amount of heat generated, even if they are tiny amounts. That
prevents 100% efficiency.
