Mechanical Advantage = load/effort
Simple machines apply mechanical advantage to typically move an output force (load) with an input force (effort), less than that of the output force.
In the physical sciences, mechanical energy is the sum of potential energy and kinetic energy. It is the energy associated with the motion and position of an object.
A mechanical system manages power to accomplish a task that involves forces and movement.
strength or energy as an attribute of physical action or movement.
