27. What do we mean when we say that a simple machine uses mechanical advantage to
make a \"tradeoff\" between force and distance?

Work = Force * Distance        definition of work

W = F * d

If one uses 1/2 the force to move an object, then he must move the force thru twice the distance to get the same work output.

Still have questions?
