All machines lose some of the input force applied to them as a result of friction and other forces. The efficiency of a machine refers to how much of the input work is converted to output work by the machine. You can find the efficiency of a machine by dividing the output work by the input work. Because the output work will always be smaller than input work, efficiency will always fall somewhere between 0 and 1, with 1 being a machine that has as much output as input work (not possible in the real world) and 0 being a machine that is totally useless because none of the input work is converted to output work.
