**Output Force Calculator**

Enter the values of input force, IF_{(N)} and mechanical advantage, MA to determine the value of output Force, OF_{(N)}.

**Output Force Formula**

Output Force (OF) is the force generated by a machine or system as a result of an input force and the mechanical advantage of the system.

**Output Force, OF _{(kN)}** in Newtons is calculated by multiplying the input force, IF

_{(N) }in Newtons, with the mechanical advantage, MA (dimensionless).

**Output Force, OF _{(N)} = **IF

_{(N)}* MA

**OF _{(N)} = output force in Newtons, N.**

IF_{(N)} = input force in Newtons, N.

MA = mechanical advantage.

__Output Force Calculation: __

- A lever is used to lift a heavy rock. An input force of 50 Newtons is applied. If the mechanical advantage of the lever is 5, calculate the output force exerted to lift the rock.

Given: IF_{(N)} = 50N, MA = 5.

**Output Force, OF _{(N)} = **IF

_{(N)}* MA

**OF _{(N)} = 50 * 5**

**OF _{(N)} = 250N.**

- Suppose a system exerts an output force of 600 Newtons when an input force of 75 Newtons is applied.

Given: IF_{(N)} = 75N, **OF _{(N)} = 600N**.

**Output Force, OF _{(N)} = **IF

_{(N)}* MA

MA = **OF _{(N)} / IF_{(N)}**

MA = 600 / 75

MA = 8.
