== Actual mechanical advantage is the number of times force exerted on a machine is multiplied by the machine. Ideal force is just a theory. The formula for mechanical advantage is mechanical advantage== out put force divided by input force.The formula for efficiency is efficiency=output work divided by input work times 100%. Output force is the force exerted on the machine. Input force is the force you exert on the machine. ===

What is the difference between ima and ama?

Ima is Ideal Mechanical Advantage and Ama is Actual Mechanical Advantage. The difference is that IMA doesn't take into account elasticity or friction and AMA does.


What is the difference between actual machanical advantage and ideal machanical advantage?

Ideal mechanical advantage is what could be obtained without the effects of gravity and friction lowering the efficiency of the machine. The actual mechanical advantage is what can actually be obtained by the machine.


What is the difference between ideal mechanical advantage and actual mechanical advantage?

the equation of mechanical advantage isFout (force, output)divided byFin (force input)the equation for Ideal mechanical advantage isDin (distance, input)divided byDout (distance, output)hope this helps a bit


What is actual mechanical advantage?

Actual mechanical advantage is the real advantage it gives you. ideal mechanical advantage only theoretically exists. divide the force you get out by the force you put in


How does the ideal compare with the actual mechanical advantage?

The actual mechanical advantage is usually less, due to losses.


Why is the actual mechanical advantage of an inclined plane alwaysess than the theoretical mechanical advantage?

This is because the actual mechanical advantage is the actual calculation found after dividing the effort force by the output force. Ideal mechanical advantage is what many people would call an estimate. When estimating mechanical advantage, the numbers are always rounded. This makes actual mechanical advantage less.

What is the mechanical advantage that a machine provides in a real situation?

The Actual Mechanical advantage.


What is the importance of actual mechanical advantage.?

What is the formula for actual mechanical advantage?

Actual Mechanical Advantage is the ratio of Force outputed to Force inputed. (AMA=Fo/Fi) Similarly, IMA (Ideal Mechanical Advantage) = di/do


What does reducing the friction in a machine do to the machine's ideal mechanical advantage?

Ideal mechanical advantage is calculated assuming there is no friction, no deflection, and no wear.Therefore, reducing the friction in a machine will not affect the machine's ideal mechanical advantage. Reducing friction in a machine could improve the actual mechanical advantageof the machine. Measurement of the actual mechanical advantage of a machine requires actual operation of the machine, data, and calculations.


What is IMA and AMA?

IMA- Ideal mechanical advantageAMA- Actual mechanical advantage


How do you account for the fact that the actual mechanical advantage and the ideal mechanical advantage are not the same?

Friction!


What is true about the actual mechanical advantage of a machine?

it is less than the ideal mechanical advantage


What does the M stands for in the abbreviation AMA?

Depending on the context , it might mean " medical". Mechanical = Actual Mechanical Advantage


Why is actual mechanical advantage less than ideal mechanical advantage?

This is because the actual mechanical advantage is the actual calculation found after dividing the effort force by the output force. Ideal mechanical advantage is what many people would call and estimate. When estimating mechanical advantage, the numbers are always rounded. This makes actual mechanical advantage less. Sources: Science teacher ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The answer above is incorrect. The ideal mechanical advantage (IMA) is usually less than the mechanical advantage (MA) in a given machine because of the friction acting on the machine. There will always be some frictional resistance that increases the effort necessary to do the work.


Actual mechanical advantage of a pulley?

Mechanical Advantage = distance moved at input / distance moved at output


Distinguish between theoretical mechanical advantage and actual mechanical advantage How will these compare if a machine is 100 percent efficient?

When a machine is 100% efficient, theoretical and actual MAs are the same. Please let me know when you run across one of these.


What is the formula for mechanical advantage?

Mechanical Advantage: F(out)/ F(in) Actual Mechanical Advantage is the ratio of Force outputed to Force inputed. (AMA=Fo/Fi) Similarly, IMA (Ideal Mechanical Advantage) = di/do


How does actual mechanical advantage compare to ideal mechanical advantage?

They are both the same.


Why is ideal mechanical advantage different that actual mechanical advantage?

Ideal mehanical advantage is acting as if friction is not there, actual is well... real so friction is there. > Machine efficiency (%) = (work out / work in) * 100


What can be done to increase the efficiency of the machine?

Mechanical Efficiency is the ratio of Actual mechanical advantage to ideal mechanical advantage.Efficiency will be maximum when Actual mechanical advantage equals that of ideal.But practically not possible.Actual mechanical advantage will be less due to friction,heat,deflection etc.avoiding these loses will increase the machine efficiency.


Why is the actual mechanical advantage of a machine different from a machine's deal mechanical advantage?

The "ideal mechanical advantage" makes some simplifying assumptions, mainly that there are no losses, for example, due to friction. If there ARE losses, this will reduce the real mechanical advantage.


What is the actual mechanical advantage of the pliers?

You can grip things tightly with them.


What is actual mechanical advantage and how do you calculate it?

Mechanical Advantage (MA) = output force/input force. Example: MA = 500N / 50N = 10


Why is actual mechanical advantage of a machine less that ideal mechanical advantage?

Some of the theoretical advantage is lost as a result of friction, through which energy may be converted to heat or sound.
