SIMPLE MACHINES are used to perform a variety of tasks with considerable efficiency. In this example, a system of gears, pulleys, and levers function to produce accurate time measurements.

• Describe a simple machine in general terms and apply the concepts of efficiency, energy conservation, work, and power.
• Distinguish by definition and example between the concepts of the ideal and actual mechanical advantages.
• Describe and apply formulas for the mechanical advantage and efficiency of the following devices: (a) levers, (b) inclined planes, (c) wedges, (d) gears, (e) pulley systems, (f) wheel and axel, (g) screw jacks, and (h) the belt drive.

In a simple machine, input work is done by the application of a single force, and the machine does output work by means of a single force.

The advantage is a reduced input force, but it is at the expense of distance. The input force must move a greater distance.

sin = 5.0m

Example 1.The efficiency of a simple machine is 80% and a 400-N weight is lifted a vertical height of 2 m. If an input force of 20 N is required, what distance must be covered by the input force?

The efficiency is 80% or e = 0.80, therefore

Efficiency is the ratio of the power output to the power input.

Power and Efficiency

Since power is work per unit time, we may write

Po = 6270 ftlb/s

Example 2.A12-hp winch motor lifts a 900-lb load

to a height of 8 ft. What is the output power in ftlb/s if the winch is 95% efficient?

Po= (0.95)(12 hp) = 11.4 hp

Ex. 2 (cont.)A12-hp winch motor lifts a 900 lb load

We just found that Po = 6270 W

Now we solve for t :

The actual mechanical advantage, MA, is the ratio of Fo to Fi.

For example, if an input force of 40 N lifts an 80 N weight, the actual mechanical advantage is:

Conservation of energy demands that:

Input work = output work + work against friction

Anidealor perfect machine is 100% efficient and (Work)f = 0, so that

An Ideal Machine

The ratio si/sois the ideal mechanical advantage.

MI

The ideal mechanical advantage,MI, is the ratio of sin to sout.

For example, if an input force moves a distance of 6 m while the output force moves 2 m, the ideal mechanical advantage is:

IDEAL EXAMPLE:

Fin = 80 N

A simple machine

Sin = 8 m

Fout=400 N

Sout= 2 m

e = 100%

Efficiency for an Ideal Engine

For 100% efficiency MA = MI. In other words, in the absence of friction, the machine IS an ideal machine and e = 1.

The efficiency of any engine is given by:

Efficiency for an Actual Engine

The actual efficiency is always less than the ideal efficiency because friction always exits. The efficiency is still equal to the ratio MA/MI.

In our previous example, the ideal mechanical advantage was equal to 4. If the engine was only 50% efficient, the actual mechanical advantage would be 0.5(4) or 2. Then 160 N (instead of 80 N) would be needed to lift the 400-N weight.

Fout

A lever shown here consists of input and output forces at different distances from a fulcrum.

The input torque Firi is equal to the output torque Foro.

Wheel and Axel:

For example, if R = 30 cm and r = 10 cm, an input force of only 100 N will lift a 300-N weight!

If the smaller radius is 1/3 of the larger radius, your output force is 3 times the input force.

The Belt Drive

A belt drive is a device used to transmit torque from one place to another. The actual mechanical advantage is the ratio of the torques.

Angular Speed Ratio

The mechanical advantage of a belt drive can also be expressed in terms of the diameters D or in terms of the angular speeds w.

Note that the smaller pulley diameter always has the greater rotational speed.

To find Do we use the fact that

Fi

Example 4.A 200 Nm torque is applied to an input pulley12 cm in diameter. (a) What should be the diameter of the output pulley to give an ideal mechanical advantage of 4? (b) What is the belt tension?

Do = 4(12 cm) = 48 cm

Now, ti = Firi and ri = Di/2. Belt tension is Fi and ri is equal to ½Di = 0.06 m.

Gears:

No

Ni

In this case, Dois the diameter of the driving gear and Diis diameter of the driven gear. N is the number of teeth.

If 200 teeth are in the input (driving) gear, and 100 teeth in the output (driven) gear, the mech-anical advantage is ½.

Gears

Mechanical advantage of gears is similar to that for belt drive:

No = 20

Ni = 40

Example 5.The driving gear on a bicycle has 40 teeth and the wheel gear has only 20 teeth. What is the mechanical advantage? If the driving gear makes 60 rev/min, what is the rotational speed of the rear wheel?

Remember that the angular speed ratio is opposite to the gear ratio.

Output angular speed:

wo = 120 rpm

wo = 2wi = 2(60 rpm)

Because of friction, the actual mechanical advantage MAof an inclined plane is usually much less than the ideal mechanical advantage MI.

Si = 8 m

Fo = 400 N

Example 6. An inclined plane has a slope of 8 m and a height of 2 m. What is the ideal mechan-ical advantage and what is the necessary input force needed to push a 400-N weight up the incline? The efficiency is 60 percent.

Fi = 167 N

The Screw Jack

Due to friction, the screw jack is an inefficient machine with an actual mechanical advantage significantly less than the ideal advantage.
