A number of machines are capable of doing this. One of them is the lever. Any machine that increases distance inevitably reduces force.

The force will decrease as the distance increases.

Increasing the distance between the load and pivot increases the work output of a machine.

A number of machines are capable of doing this. One of them is the lever. Any machine that increases distance inevitably reduces force.

When the Force increases on an Object, the Distance it travels INCREASES, as does its Velocity.

It decreases[:

The force will decrease as the distance increases.

When what increases? - The gravitational force depends on the masses involved, and on the distance. More mass --> more force. Greater distance --> less force.

The distance of the object

At greater distances, the force of gravity becomes less.

Increasing the distance between the load and pivot increases the work output of a machine.
