The force exerted on a machine.
force exerted on an object by a machine.
The number of times the force exerted on a machine is multiplied by the machine

formula for work
W = Fd or W = force X distance
formula for efficiency
eff = (output work/input work) X 100%
formula for mechanical advantage using force
MA = output F/input F
formula for mechanical advantage using distances
MA = input d/output d
Unit if power, equal to I joule of work per second.
The rate at which work is done. P = (force X distance)/time or P = work/time
