Let’s say we have a 20-tooth pinion attached to a motor shaft. Then a 100-tooth spur gear (of the same diametral pitch, of course) mates with the pinion to rotate an adjacent shaft. The pinion must rotate five times to turn the output gear once, so the mechanical advantage is 5:1. When the gear train is being used to magnify force, the input gear will always be smaller than the output gear. This setup is great when you have a motor and need to multiply the work it can do by itself, or when you need to slow the motor’s output to a speed that fits your application.

The string should be tight enough that when the duct tape roll hits the spoon or fork, that small amount of movement in the string dislodges the egg gate. 14. Now it’s showtime! Slide the wooden dowel out of the top slot.

So in this case, each part of the rope carries one-third of the weight, and that is the mechanical advantage we feel when pulling on the rope: It’s three times easier to lift the weight using this arrangement than it would be to lift the weight on our own. That’s a 3:1 mechanical advantage. TIP If you count the number of parts of rope going to and from the movable pulley that suspends the weight, you can figure out the mechanical advantage. If there are three pieces of rope going to and leaving one movable pulley, the mechanical advantage is 3:1.
