How to Calculate the Mechanical Advantage of a Machine (Physics)

Mechanical advantage is a very important parameter of machines and is considered a lever problem.

Mechanical advantage is the ratio of load to effort.

Nickzom Calculator – The Calculator Encyclopedia solves for mechanical advantage alongside a bunch of other problems in Physics.

For Example: Let’s calculate mechanical advantage of a machine when the load is 200 N and the effort is 120 N.

Mechanical Advantage = Load / Effort

Load = 200 N

Effort = 120 N

Mechanical Advantage = 200 / 120 = 1.6667

Therefore, the mechanical advantage of the machine is 1.6667.

Nickzom Calculator Calculates Maximum Height of a Projectile

According to SoftSchools.com,

A projectile is an object that is given an initial velocity, and is acted on by gravity. The maximum height of the object is the highest vertical position along its trajectory. The maximum height of the projectile depends on the initial velocity v0, the launch angle θ, and the acceleration due to gravity. The unit of maximum height is meters (m).

Nickzom Calculator calculates the maximum height of a projectile given the accurate values for the required parameters. The required parameters to get the answer to maximum height are:

  • Acceleration due to Gravity
  • Initial Velocity
  • Angle of Projection

Let’s get started, first and foremost, proceed to the home page of the app, select Physics and click on Open Section.

Nickzom Calculator Calculates the Capacitive Reactance of a Simple AC Circuit

According to Electronics Tutorials,

Capacitors that are connected to a sinusoidal supply produce reactance from the effects of supply frequency and capacitor size.

The capacitive reactance of the capacitor decreases as the frequency across it increases therefore capacitive reactance is inversely proportional to frequency.

The opposition to current flow, the electrostatic charge on the plates (its AC capacitance value) remains constant as it becomes easier for the capacitor to fully absorb the change in charge on its plates during each half cycle.

In Physics, Nickzom Calculator solves a whole lot of calculations and thereby relieves the stress on scientists. One of those calculations is on Simple AC Circuit

Today, I am sharing with you how you can find answers to computations on Capacitive Reactance.

First and Foremost, Proceed to the Calculator Map, then scroll to the Physics section and click on Simple A.C. Circuit.

Now, click on Capacitive Reactance

An activity or page is displayed for you to enter the required parameters to compute the capacitive reactance which are:

  • Frequency
  • Capacitance

Nickzom Calculator Solves Calculations on Gas Laws

In Physics and Chemistry, there are four prominent gas laws that govern calculations related to gases. These laws have major parameters such as:

  • Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Volume

The four gas laws are:

  • Boyle’s Law
  • Charles’ Law
  • Pressure or Gay Lussac’s Law
  • The General Gas Equation

According to Boyle’s law, pressure is indirectly proportional to volume.

According to Charles’ law, volume is directly proportional to temperature.

According to Pressure or Gay Lussac’s law, pressure is directly proportional to temperature.

According to the General Gas Equation or law, the product of pressure and volume is directly proportional to temperature.

For this post, I would be given an example of how Nickzom Calculator can solve a problem on gas laws with the general gas equation or law.

One can access Nickzom Calculator via any of these channels:

Physics, Elasticity Calculations Solutions By Nickzom Calculator – The Calculator Encyclopedia

According to Wikipedia,

In Physics, elasticity is the ability of a body to resist a distorting influence and to return to its original size and shape when that influence or force is removed. Solid objects will deform when adequate forces are applied to them. If the material is elastic, the object will return to its initial shape and size when these forces are removed.

At Nickzom Calculator, we solve for the following:

  1. Hooke’s Law Parameters (Force, Extension and Elastic Constant)
  2. Young’s Modulus
  3. Stress
  4. Strain
  5. Work Done or Elastic Potential Energy (Force)
  6. Work Done or Elastic Potential Energy (Elastic Constant)

Let’s say for example you want to find the force of an elastic material using Hooke’s law.

First, you need to get Nickzom Calculator either on web, or as an app via this links

Web – https://www.nickzom.org/calculator

Android (Free) – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nickzom.nickzomcalculator

Apple (iTunes – Paid) – https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nickzom-calculator/id1331162702?mt=8

Next, you go to Physics, Then click on Elasticity.

Once you click on Elasticity, a new page comes up, click on Hooke’s law

Enter the elastic constant (K) and the extension for the elastic material

Once, you have entered the values click on calculate

As you can see above. Nickzom Calculator would solve the problems and provide you with a valid answer alongside the workings.
