A woman from a water from a well using a fixed pulley. The mass of the bucket and water together is 6 kg. The force applied by the woman is 70 N. Calculate the Mechanical advantage.(given g=9.8m/s2)

Dear Student,
Mass of the bucket + water = M = 6 kg.
Weight of the bucket + water = Mg = 6 kg×9.8 ms-2=58.8 N
Mechanical Advantage (MA) = Force outputForce input=LoadEffort=58.870=0.84
